Julia Rosenstock — Oracles of Denied Presents

Navigation, Orientation, Information — Summer 2019

Climate Collapse is taking place, yet so far major consequences are only felt in parts of the global south; what we deny in Western society is present in their daily life. The Youtube-Playlist presents both a parallel and a future reality. The videos display coping mechanisms and products that simulate normality to numb the reality of a collapse tangled world. The reality of a denied present, the gap between knowledge and action.
