Text: Žiga Divjak and the cast
We have used some motives and fragments from the books Less is More: How Degrowth Will Save the World by Jason Hickel, How to Blow Up a Pipeline by Andreas Malm, Ministry for the Future by Kim Stanley Robinson and The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming by David Wallace-Wells


In his first international co-production, Žiga Divjak will speak about the climate crisis in relation to the inextricably intertwined class issues and (neoliberal) capitalism. He will contemplate the idea of degrowth, the feeling of anger that comes over almost anyone that delves into environmental issues, and whether it is justifiable to resort to violence in order to put an end to this devastating spiral. He will also give thought to hope; one that is focused on a clear and still attainable goal and is not grounded in fairy-tales.
