“After the Greta Thunberg blitz many wonder what can we do, what big changes do we make??
Peter Fend, a forty year art veteran known for operating both within the art world and the real one says, USE ART! Do what humans have done for millions of years to succeed: make, believe in, mimic and rely on it!
Since 1967, his visual work and lectures have demonstrated the possibilities of art paradigms as producers of functional reality. Already, due to his collaborative interventions, history has been made: in the Persian Gulf, in Ukraine, in the Malvinas! Most of that history is scandalous! Now, can something positive happen?? Fend shows us what could happen in Texas, Puerto Rico, all the way to the Amazon!
But given the fifty and hundred-year delays in art being enacted, Fend says, all of us humans are now in danger! Breakthroughs must happen. Changes must be made. What comes next?? Find out at CULTURE HOLE!!
Peter Fend founded OCEAN EARTH DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION & TVGOV. Previous talks include UN Correspondents Association (twice), US Congress (commissioned report), military think tanks in US and UK, international scientific conferences sponsored by the UNEP and FAO, and probably more architecture events than art ones. Current project sites: Marseille, Baku, Sardinia (electricity vs. gas battle), Dubai, New York Bight, basins on the Silk Road. His collaborators have included Joseph Beuys, Carolee Schneemann, Gordon Matta-Clark, Dennis Oppenheim, Richard Serra, Jenny Holzer, Richard Prince, Paul Sharits and a world-dispersed coterie of young collaborators.”
