Olafur’s AR artwork @EarthSpeakr invites adults and today’s decision-makers, change-makers, and global leaders to listen up to what kids have to say. Adults are invited to participate to amplify the powerful messages kids have to share.

‘It is, in its own serendipity, also about burning your candle at both ends’ – Olafur describes one of his early works to @MOCAlosangeles director @KlausBiesenbach in the latest of MOCA’s #VirtualStudioVisits.
Olafur, along with 100 other artists, has donated a work for the UNO-Flüchtlingshilfe art lottery, organised to raise money for UNHCR's worldwide life-saving operations and projects and initiatives of refugees in Germany.
It's time to #FaceTheClimateEmergency! Today Olafur signed this urgent open letter to global leaders, written by the inspirational young climate activists @Luisamneubauer, @GretaThunberg, @AnunaDe, & @AdelaideCharli2. Everyone is invited to sign & share!
Since the beginning of July, the kids of @EarthSpeakr have been sharing their messages. Are you listening?
Download the app and encourage a kid to share their own message. Adults can also create their own ‘Loud Speakrs’ to amplify kids’ voices.
Kindred books found in the exhibition ‘Down to Earth’ at Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin.
Many of these books also happen to be included in our studio ‘Research map’, installed as part of Olafur’s current solo exhibition ‘In real life’ @MuseoGuggenheim
Research materials used to create ‘Ice lab’, 2020. Several 3D prints are installed as part of Olafur’s current exhibition ‘Sometimes the river is the bridge’ @MOT_art_museum in Tokyo.
