2020: THE WALK










Myymälä2 is proud to host
2020: The Walk

On the 17th of September 2022 at 17:00 Marta Moreno Muñoz and Oscar Martín will moderate an open discussion about civil resistance / NVDA in the face of the climate, ecological and civilisation crisis with Extinction Rebellion and Scientist Rebellion activists.
The discussion will be followed by a presentation of ‘2020: The Walk’, and by a live sound performance

2020: The Walk is an art and activist project in which Marta Moreno Muñoz and Oscar Martín traveled, mostly on foot, all the way from Granada to Helsinki -and from there up North to the permafrost, with some trains and ferries – raising awareness about the no-fly movement and helping to spread the word of Extinction Rebellion by giving talks and nonviolent direct action training. During the 4000 kilometres, they connected with fellow XR rebels and other climate change activists from related movements amongst the waves of rebellion, and they joined on some journeys as regenerative time, reflecting together about civil resistance in Spain, France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Finland.

The project will end at Ars Bioartica where Marta Moreno Muñoz and Oscar Martín will spend two weeks exploring the environment, researching, writing and filming the last scenes of 2020: The Walk. Bioart Society is the motor behind Ars Bioarctica which is a long term art&science initiative started in autumn 2008 together with the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station of the Faculty of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of Helsinki. Ars Bioarctica fosters projects between artists and scientists to develop new kind of scientific and artistic thinking and through this participate and contribute to the discussion on the relation of humankind and nature.

“I understand artistic practice to be a vehicle that can transform life, our relationship with ourselves, society, and the natural world, by experimenting with our subjectivities, expanding consciousness and thereby creating new existential scenarios. As an artist and activist fully engaged in Extinction Rebellion – a global environmental movement with the stated aim of using nonviolent civil disobedience to compel government to act to avoid triggering tipping points in the climate system, biodiversity loss, and the risk of social and ecological collapse – my latest performances internalize our existential crisis in the midst of the current planetary emergency.”
~ Artist Marta Moreno Muñoz

“We are unprepared for the danger our future holds. We face floods, wildfires, extreme weather, crop failure, mass displacement and the breakdown of society. The time for denial is over. It is time to act.
This is our darkest hour. We are in urgent need of a radical system change: it is our sacred duty to rebel.” ~ Extinction Rebellion.

Marta Moreno Muñoz (Spain, 1978) is a performance – video artist and activist with a background in experimental theatre and other time-based arts. She is at present in a transitional stage, shifting towards the conceptualisation of larger-scale projects exploring the complex interchange between performance art and the cinematic language. Marta Moreno has lived, produced and engaged in artistic works in Spain, UK, Turkey, India, The Netherlands, Indonesia, Singapore, The Philippines and exhibited internationally. Currently based in Granada, she is researching for her PhD thesis “Art as an Experience of Dissolution of the Self. Towards an Art Practice in Times of Collapse”; directing The Unifiedfield; and producing 2020: The Walk with Extinction Rebellion.

Oscar Martín a.k.a Noish. Winthertur, 1977, is an independent artist, programmer and researcher. In his practice and installations, art and science converge in an experimental and heterodox approach, and he addresses emergence and self-organisation in complex and chaotic systems with non-human agents. From the sound aspect, his pieces propose to encourage active listening and expand perception through the physical-acoustic experience of the phenomenon of the emergence of structures and patterns in the limits of the chaotic and the ordered. His works have been shown at Museo Nacional Reina Sofía, Piksel Festival, SONAR, ISEA2022 Barcelona, Ars Electrónica Garden , NK-project Berlin, among others.
