Episode 2: "Let’s Talk about the Weather—Artistic Practice and Climate Change"
Released Friday, September 27

More and more artists and institutions address environmental issues. Is this increasing interest a mere trend or is it possible for artists and their artworks, as well as institutions and their programs, to have a concrete effect on tackling climate change and a positive impact on changing attitudes and mentalities? Let’s Talk about the Weather brings together artists and institutions committed to environmental action in a discussion about the ways in which art can improve the planet’s condition.

Episode 3: "Between Production and Reproduction—Career and Motherhood in the Artworld"
Released Friday, October 4

Is working in the arts compatible with parenting? Do adequate conditions exist for art professionals to embrace motherhood without fear? How do these conditions vary from one place to another? With social practices and care economies embedded into artistic approaches, has contemporary art finally made room for women artists and curators to be mothers, or is motherhood still considered the kiss of death for a career? "Between Production and Reproduction" gathers a group of speakers (all mothers) to discuss their experiences, opinions, and proposals on how to juggle career and private life in the present.
