Abstract

The group exhibition “Forest talks to us” offers perspectives on forest disputes as well as on the concepts of conversation and co-creation. The themes of forest disputes, stemmed from a wicked problem around climate crises, lack of biodiversity and forest industry. Locals, nature activists, forest owners and representatives of national forest institutions have different views of good ways of using forest. For example, the forest industry causes eco-anxiety.

The need to increase dialogue and understanding of the cultural backgrounds of environmental conflicts is evident in Lapland in Finland. The artists of this group exhibition applied arts in the mediation of environmental conflicts by listening to and representing the various voices of stakeholders, including non-human nature and local cultures, in Äkäslompolo. Ecoculture and forest culture are some key concepts in the exhibition.
