The Lost Defenders of the Environment by Mika Yamaguchi and Orion Cruz

Conference et debate led by Madeleine Planeix-Crocker

  • A l'initiative de Madeleine Planeix-Crocker, élève de la Majeure/Mastère Média-Art et Création de HEC Paris, l'Espace d'art contemporain HEC vous invite le vendredi 11 décembre à 16h30 sur le campus HEC à une conférence autour de l'oeuvre The Lost Defenders of the Environment  de Mika Yamaguchi et Orion Cruz.

    The Lost Defenders of the Environment calls attention to the 991 documented environmental activists who were killed or the victims of disappearances from 2002 to 2014 in thirty-nine countries. While nationally sanctioned monuments traditionally commemorate those who perished in battle, Mike Yamaguchi and Orion Cruz's Non-memorial recognizes marginalized victims of often secret persecutions, revealing the staggering number of known deaths and disappearances resulting from systemic oppression; traumatic killings that are, in many cases, not recognized as crimes. The Non-memorial is a digital film projection of names. It is mobile and fleeting so it derives its significance from what it is not. It is not a memorial; it is not a permanent; it does not provide closure, nor is it indicative of justice. It can be anywhere because it is nowhere, and it is nothing until leaders/governments make the changes necessary to prevent more deaths of environmental activists.

    The event is listed in the official program for COP21: 

  • Time: 16h30
  • Where: Espace d'art contemporain HEC, Bâtiment T, Salle 105, 1 rue de la libération, 78350, Jouy-en-Josas
