LIKE THERE'S NO TOMORROW (Melody Pasanideh und Jos Porath)
Unafraid to address one of the most important topics of our time, climate change, as a stellar business opportunity, the fictitious start-up Climate Corporations spotlight the lucrative potential of global catastrophe and milk it. Their “climate parties” offer an attractive combination of pre-apocalyptic hedonism, club culture and an “affirmative approach to disaster“.

Brought to life to sustain cultural freedom for artists in a post-gentrified environment, 2. OG is an experimental hub in the historic Alte Münze building in Berlin-Mitte. 2. OG intends to support fringe art and culture productions by creating non-commercial work and exhibition opportunities with a focus on interdisciplinary ideas for a better future, city and society.
