Olafur Eliasson: Green light – An artistic workshop, 2017

As part of the exhibition Viva Arte Viva, the 57th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, curated by Christine Macel, presented Olafur Eliasson’s Green light — An artistic workshop. Initiated by Eliasson in collaboration with Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (TBA21) in Vienna, Austria, in 2016, this project is a response to the current geopolitical situation in which millions of people have been uprooted by war and violence as well as to broader issues surrounding global migration. It shines a metaphoric green light to asylum seekers, refugees, and economic migrants by inviting them to participate in a multi-faceted program of creativity and shared learning. This includes a workshop for the construction of Green light lamps, as well as language courses, seminars, artist’s interventions, and film screenings.

“I’m very pleased that the Venice Biennale is hosting Green light – An artistic workshop. This multi-participant project resonates with the overall ambition of Christine Macel’s VIVA ARTE VIVA to address a humanist ideal; by shaping a welcoming zone of interaction for refugees, visitors, and locals to work together and participate in a shared learning programme, I hope to shine light on the potential for working together to respond to the current challenges facing the world.” – Olafur Eliasson
