Art & Ecology

Welcome to the innovative project “One Week, One Object”

A bold initiative that unites artistic creativity, sustainable degrowth, the democratization of art, and popular cultural education.

Every week, 52 talented artists commit to reinterpreting an object on canvas, thus creating an artistic dialogue deeply connected to contemporary ecological issues. Our mission is to raise awareness, promote sustainable degrowthand stimulate reflection on the political solutions of tomorrow through impactful artistic symbolism.

The Fundamental Pillars

Sustainable Degrowth
  • Each artistic creation explores the concept of sustainable degrowth, questioning society about its consumption and it’s impact on the environment
  • Artists are encouraged to use recycled materials and adopt environmentally friendly practices.
Democratization of Art
  • By showcasing 52 different artists each year, we democratize access to art and offer an inclusive platform for emerging talents.
  • Each week, an artist is featured through a video on our platforms, creating a direct link between the artist, their work, and the audience.
Popular Cultural Education
  • The artworks are designed to educate and provoke thought. Each creation is accompanied by a context explaining its connection with environmental issues and the envisioned solutions.

Prestigious Events

Final Exposition
  • grand final exhibition brings together the 52 artworks, offering an immersive and educational experience to the public.
A Scholarship Award Ceremony

Ecology and Art: An Interdisciplinary Dialogue

Degrowth

Concept : Degrowth proposes a questioning of the economic model centered on infinite growth, advocating a voluntary reduction in material consumption.

Author : Serge Latouche, a French economist, is a fervent defender of degrowth, emphasizing the need to rethink our ways of life.

Democratization of Art

Concept : The democratization of art aims to make art accessible to a wider audience, eliminating traditional socio-economic barriers.

Author : Pierre Bourdieu, a French sociologist, has contributed to the understanding of cultural dynamics and inequalities in access to art.

Popular Cultural Education

Concept : Popular cultural education seeks to empower individuals through access to culture, promoting a critical understanding of the world.

Author : Paulo Freire, a Brazilian educator, developed the concept of education as an instrument for social transformation.

Ecology and Committed Art

Concept : Engaged art in ecology uses creativity as a means to raise awareness about environmental issues and encourage action.

Author : Joseph Beuys, a German artist, incorporated ecological concepts into his art, advocating for a holistic approach to nature.

Environmental Psychology

Concept : Environmental psychology explores the relationships between individuals and their environment, influencing attitudes and behaviors.

Author : Roger Ulrich, an American psychologist, has studied the positive effects of nature on mental health.

Behavioral Economics Analysis


Concept : Behavioral economics analyzes how cognitive biases influence consumption choices, highlighting the importance of sustainable models.

Author : Daniel Kahneman, a psychologist and economist, was awarded a Nobel Prize for his work on decision processes.

The interplay of these intertwined concepts defines a powerful framework for artistic and ecological exploration. The convergence of degrowth, the democratization of art, popular cultural education, engaged art, environmental psychology, and behavioral economics provides a holistic perspective to stimulate reflection and catalyze change. In this fusion of ideas, we discover the transformative power of art and ecology to build a more sustainable and inclusive future.
