The understanding of art will change as the average temperature on Earth rises. In the future, everyone has to be like an artist and use his/her creativity to cope with daily insecurity. There will be art but will there be an audience?

Too Hot For Art artists are:

Natalia Castrillón, harpist

Amandine Doat, dancer and circus artist

Jaap Klevering, sound and performance artist

Vishnu Vardhani, body artist

By offering a two-day cross-artistic performance they will explore and ponder the role of art in a crisis situation. The project is curated by performance artist Willem Wilhelmus and produced by Catalysti ry, Transcultural Artists Association in Finland.

You can find Too Hot For Art at the Railway Station square in one of the shipping containers.
