BLACK GOLD, rush - tides - turn: our future without oil?

Start
After having been built thanks to oil, after having dreamt of the infinite transformations of raw and telluric matter, is the contemporary world capable of doing without it? The Halle aux sucres in Dunkirk is hosting an exhibition until 16 June 2019, "OR NOIR, rush - tides - turn" for a projection of a future without oil.
 
DFrom the lighting of fireplaces in the 19th century to images of burning wells in Kuwait, from repeated oil spills to the ubiquity of plastic and Tintin's journey to the land of a thousand and one nights, oil is part of our mythology, our daily life and our history.
Today, the hegemony of oil is being called into question. After having been built thanks to oil, after having dreamt of the infinite transformations of raw and telluric matter, is the contemporary world capable of doing without it?
 
Against a backdrop of growing energy demand, potential depletion of fossil resources and the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, "BLACK GOLD, Rush - Tide - Turn" projects us into an oil-free future.
 
 
Imaginative and interactive, anchored in the present and oriented towards the future, this exhibition questions our links and dependencies to oil by relying on its most concrete and immediate presence in our environment, and by exploring the happy potential of post-oil scenarios and landscapes.
 
As an extension of the exhibition go to to think the world differently, bringing together writers, artists, researchers, inventors and citizens through a cross-disciplinary programme of conversations, events, workshops, visits...
 
Curator of the exhibition BLACK GOLD, rush - tides - turn : Carola HEIN, Professor and Chair of the Department of History of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Delft.
 
BLACK GOLD, rush - tides - turn at thea Sugar Shack9003, Route du quai Freycinet 3 in Dunkerque (59), (on Pier 1 just opposite the Citadel) until 16 June 2019.
