In his first solo exhibition in the Czech Republic, Oliver Ressler presents films and photographic works focused on the climate justice movements and forms of resistance to the wrecking of the Earth’s climate – and the basis of human existence. The title “No Future is cancelled” points to the necessity for people to engage politely, not to leave decisions that affect all our lives neither to national politicians nor transnational corporations, and to engage in – what Jeremy Brecher coined – “climate insurgency” on a massive and global scale.
The central piece in the exhibition is Ressler’s 5-channel video installation “Everything’s coming together while everything’s falling apart” (2016-ongoing). It follows the climate justice movement and its struggles to dismantle an economic system heavily dependent on fossil fuels. The work records key events for the movement, connecting many situations, contexts, voices and experiences.
