Live Stage: Where do we go from here? [Copenhagen]

Where do we go from here? Symposium :: December 12, 2009; 10:00 am – 5:00 pm :: Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Gl. Strandvej 13, DK-Humlebæk, Copenhagen.

On the occasion of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen (COP15), the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in collaboration with BMW Group, invites the public to an open symposium comprising international names in the fields of architecture, design, contemporary art and technology. The one-day symposium will, among others, discuss the new challenges pertaining to the environment as well as issues of sustainability in the creative sector. A number of the world’s leading innovative personalities will present their ideas and visions for the future in lectures and discussions.

The participants of the symposium “Where do we go from here?” are the artists Olafur Eliasson, Sissel Tolaas, Shilpa Gupta and Ann Lislegaard; the engineer Matthias Schuler, Transsolar; the environmental entrepreneur Kresse Wesling, Elvis & Kresse; the designer and architect Patricia Urquiola; Ulrich Kranz, Head of “project i”, BMW Group.

Moderators for the day are: Peter Weibel, artist, curator and theoretician; Hans Ulrich Obrist, Co-Director of Exhibitions and Programmes and Director of International Projects, Serpentine Gallery, London, whom the English art magazine ArtReview has recently named the world’s most powerful person in contemporary art in 2009. The symposium has been initiated as a collaboration of Louisiana Museum of Modern Art and BMW Group.

Olafur Eliasson’s “Your mobile expectations: BMW H2R project” Besides the exhibitions “Green Architecture for the Future,” “Faith, Hope and Love: Jacob Holdt’s America,” “The World is Yours” will also be on view at the Louisiana Museum, a major international survey of contemporary art. “The World is Yours” showcases Olafur Eliasson’s 16th BMW Art Car titled “Your mobile expectations: BMW H2R project.” Eliasson’s project transforms an object of advanced industrial design into a work of art that critically and poetically reflects on the relationship between global warming and the automotive industry. The BMW H2R race car, a hydrogen-powered vehicle, was developed to attain speed records while pursuing a sustainable future based on the use of regenerative fuel. Eliasson has removed the car’s outer shell and replaced it with a complex, translucent skin made of steel mesh, reflective steel panels, and many layers of ice.

In addition, during COP 15, BMW Group will provide more than 30 cars for the official UN shuttle fleet including hydrogen cars and highly efficient Diesel automobiles. Furthermore, BMW Group will integrate four fully electric MINI E into a fleet of cars, transferring delegates to green technology showcases. BMW Group will also be involved in various official side events throughout, including a panel discussion by the German Ministry for the Environment on December 9th and an event organized by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. Moreover, BMW Group is official supporting partner of “Hopenhagen,” a movement and network of activists founded to build a better future for the planet and a more sustainable way of life.

Further information on the symposium is available from Louisiana’s director Poul Erik Tøjner as well as Susanne Hartz, Head of Press.
