At this year's ViLD conference 2022, we will explore the possibilities of engaging visual learning and art practices in the sustainability agenda.

An example of this new way of using art practices in combination with sustainability issues is the Danish art group Superflex, which is known for its social art projects. The group regards its work as open research that explores the relations between humans and other species and suggests a new mode of urbanism that recreates how we live together (see examples). Recently, Superflex designed the underwater sculpture Super Reef for fish, which is a part of a bigger plan aiming at re-establishing a 55 square kilometers reef that has vanished from the Danish seabed. The art group’s work is an example of how contemporary art can engage in, challenge, and intervene in the surrounding society of which we all are a part of.

We are excited about this year’s theme and to explore what role visual art practice has in taking an active part in the world’s shared challenges concerning biodiversity, CO2 reduction etc.

As usual, there will be four different workshops, a PhD Track. Information about these will be announced and updated continually.
