The industrial economic development of the last 100 years is incompatible with the sustainability of the planet. Serious climatic alterations are taking place due to the extraction of non-renewable resources, product of an excessive and inefficient consumption of energy. Given this situation, for several decades, there have been expressions of concern on the part of scientists, economists and politicians, who have tried to act from the technical sphere, the regulatory sphere, or the political sphere. Art has not been alien to this struggle; Many artists have reflected, from their personal perspective, on a subject that concerns us all. With works by artists who work on various aspects of the problem: energy, work, sustainability, and their social and political implications, this exhibition reflects on the conditions of production itself, and the implications for the planet of any human action, including artistic action. The exhibition is powered almost entirely with solar energy, and each work has a label with the estimate of the carbon footprint of its production.
