Exhibition 'Views from Above'

Greenpeace and the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) are delighted to present the exhibition opening Views from Above - Networks, Colonial Vision and Indigenous Resistance in the Brazilian Amazon.

The exhibition is a collaboration between Greenpeace Netherlands and students of the Master Non Linear Narrative at the KABK in The Hague.

Exhibition Views from Above

The opening takes place on Friday 8 February from 16-18h in the Galleries of the KABK. The exhibition is on view until 21 February 2019.

Views from Above is an exhibition of 11 projects developed during a semester-long collaboration between Greenpeace Netherlands and the Non Linear Narrative master programme of the KABK. Together with Greenpeace, students investigated the impact of deforestation by getting to know global interdependencies and risks of climate change linked to the fragile ecosystems of the Brazilian Amazon.

To understand the interdependence of factors contributing to deforestation, students reviewed various causes of deforestation and their effects on the climate. Other areas of investigation included marketing and representation of nature, agricultural and industrial exploitation, indigenous land rights and disputes, government corruption and biodiversity loss.
