In 2018, I had the idea to create an initiative to develop responses to the challenging ecological issues of our time from the realm of art. Since that time my idea of activism has changed a lot. Decisive influence on my idea of a contemporary activism had the idea of a social sculpture as Joseph Beuys developed it, anthroposophical and indigenous views, the concept of a Living Planet by Charles Eisenstein and the idea of a postactivism as Bayo Akomolafe coined it.
