In MAAT’s first collaboration with several European museums, the Eco-Visionaries: Art and Architecture after the Anthropocene project was centred on practices that propose critical and creative visions vis-à-vis the environmental transformations that are disturbing our planet. At a moment when climate changes are even more widely felt, Eco-Visionaries launches the debate on a vast array of questions associated to the Anthropocene – the recent designation for a geological period defined by the impact of human action. With contributions from over thirty five artists and architects, the show in Lisbon was the first and most wide-ranging of the four exhibitions that appeared in Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and Sweden.
