Our Desires Fail Us, Sean Martindale & JP King
In conversation with waste experts Joakim Karlsson of Envac from Stockholm, and Annette Synowiec from the City of Toronto, artists Sean Martindale and JP King explore the relationships between waste and culture. This event demonstrates how waste management programs differ geographically and asks how they are shaped by culture. Can art and design play a larger role? In turn, how do waste systems influence public perception and behaviour? What forward-thinking strategies have (Stockholm) and Toronto put forth? Join us for a fresh international look at a filthy subject.
Moderated by Virginia Maclaren
