More-than-Planet Expo FinissageMarilena Pateraki
It’s your last chance to go and see the More-than-Planet exhibition at Old Observatory, Leiden (until 23 December)! Join us at the finissage on Friday 16th of December, where invited artists and experts will provide a glimpse at what further activities the international project More-than-Planet (2022 – 2025) will develop.
It’s also a great chance to combine the finissage with a guided tour visit to the exhibition. The exhibition shows works of Dani Ploeger, Territorial Agency, Forensic Architecture and others.
What to expect
The finissage features conversations about interactions between artistic research and satellite data research, with presentations by Disnovation (art and research collective) and Space4Good (social enterprise for a better planet and society), and a roundtable discussion joined by Meta Knol (director of Leiden European City of Science) and Frans Snik (Leiden University).
Guided tours and drinks will be provided.
The conversations will focus on the importance of artistic perspectives and experiments on and with earth observation technologies. How can we create new public imaginaries of Gaia, and strengthen public agency in the context of global social and ecological issues?

Art collective Disnovation will introduce the project that they will develop within More-than-Planet with partner ART2M/Makery in Paris. The collective has an always creative yet critical view on technological phenomena such as the dark web, synthetic agriculture, NFT’s and more.
Space4Good develops environmental sensing and observation and conflict monitoring projects and it values the creative and artistic perspectives in its practice. Therefore, Space4Good participates in More-than-Planet as the partner from the industry sector.
