THE METAPHORSPRINT THIS PAGE
"The debate on climate change is highly complex and goes far beyond our imagination, even though we continually invent new words, images, figures and graphs to grasp its complexity. But how do these images and metaphors work? And what imagery lingers? "
In December 2014 artist Joseph Wouters visited the UN climate summit in Lima for two weeks. He collected 80 metaphors during these talks, that were translated into a picture book that was distributed at the end of the conference in cooperation with local printers. During his stay in Lima Wouters kept up a correspondence with essayist Jeroen Peeters. During Working Title Situation #01 Wouters and Peeters will share their imagery and correspondence and direct their gaze at the upcoming climate conference in Paris. Because the question remains: how can we imagine a problem that is not imaginable?
