I’m extremely honoured to become a UNDP Goodwill Ambassador. Urgent climate action is needed and the best roadmap for our activities is the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As an artist, I believe that culture offers access to and a felt understanding of the challenges at hand, and I look forward to joining the United Nations Development Programme in working towards these goals
New season of Netflix's show Abstract premieres on 25 September
Live from SOE is a series of livestream episodes, conceived for Olafur’s exhibition 'In real life' at Tate Modern. Streaming every other week for 30 minutes directly from the studio, this is a chance to give our audience a view into our everyday life and what it means to make artworks, exhibitions, commissions, and works in public space with Olafur. Our second episode – titled 'Advanced geometry‘ – looked at how we work with geometry research and model-making, and how this research is eventually turned into artworks.
This video is an excerpt from the full-length episode - you can watch it on soe.tv
