The Court for Intergenerational Climate Crimes (CICC), a collaboration between Framer Framed, Indian academic, writer, lawyer and activist Radha D’Souza and Dutch artist Jonas Staal, commissioned by Framer Framed. The CICC consisted of a large-scale installation in the form of a tribunal that prosecuted intergenerational climate crimes during public hearings on 28-31 October 2021. During the hearings, the CICC focused on corporations registered in the Netherlands as well as the legal frameworks established by the Dutch State system supportive of the corporations such as Unilever, ING and Airbus. The evidence of past and present climate crimes were presented with the contributions of prosecutors, witnesses and the public. The court looked at the impacts of these parties on the here and now, as well as on planetary life in the future. All hearings have been recorded and can be viewed here.

Alongside the public hearings, the tribunal hosted several public programs for study groups, gatherings and events by activists, researchers, students a.o. that are working in the field of climate justice. The themes developed by the CICC ultimately place the project within the main scope of Framer Framed: the transformation of art institutions into social spaces, in which not only reflection can take place, but also new forms of committed action can be imagined and put into practice.

When the Court for Intergenerational Climate Crimes (CICC) was not activated for hearings or larger gatherings, a video was played on a continuous loop on the four main screens at the centre of the installation. Narrated by Radha D’Souza, the video introduces the alternative legal framework of the CICC, which not only brings into evidence climate crimes of the past, but equally, prosecutes climate crimes on behalf of unborn human and non-human comrades of the future.

Iterations of the CICC traveled to new locations, among which Munster and Helsinki.

Below, you can see a digital archive of the CICC and all the other events organised in relation.

The CICC kicked off with the participation of Radha D’Souza and Jonas Staal. The project opened with an inauguration of the tribunal on the 24th of September. After a warm welcome by Framer Framed co-director Josien Pieterse, D’Souza and Staal introduced the project to both live and online audiences and answered questions from the public. You can find more information on the opening here.

The event has been live-streamed on Facebook and can be watched here.


The CICC Hearings

28-31 October 2021

Judges: Radha D’Souza | Sharon H. Venne | Nicholas Hildyard | Rasigan Maharajh
Clerk: Jonas Staal

The CICC took the form of a court where states and corporations could be held accountable, not only for the here and now, but also for the consequences of their actions on future generations. During the project’s research process, Framer Framed met with activist organisations across the world to hear their stories and learn from their experience. The CICC hearings became a platform in which to share this knowledge with a wider public.

During the public hearings, emphasis was placed on the intersection of climate crimes with environmental pollution, desertification, racism, mass displacement of people, the military industrial complex and other forms of intergenerational climate crimes. The proceedings consist of introductions by prosecutors and various witness testimony, which was overseen by four judges. The legal framework for the CICC is based on the Intergenerational Climate Crimes Act, written by Radha D’Souza.

The CICC was conceived and designed with the aim to present evidence of climate crimes both past and present, assessing their impact on present and future planetary life. As such, the tribunal rejects linear, atomised, individualised, and adversarial premises underlying the present-day legal system and instead, seeks to establish comradely bonds with ancestors and descendants across different time scales.

You can find the information on each hearing and video links below.

Crisis Imaginaries, Chapter 6: Ecologies of Vulnerability and Resistance

30 September 2021, 18:00-20:00

Crisis Imaginaries is a project by Framer Framed and Goethe-Institut Niederlande. The series explores the climate and ecological crises through participatory research and from intersectional & interdisciplinary perspectives.

The ASCA Political Ecologies Seminar, directed by Jeff Diamanti and Joost de Bloois, is a series of reading groups, masterclasses, and public lectures from international scholars and artists engaged in the creative and theoretical study of ecological relation and crisis.

For this event, Crisis Imaginaries collaborated with the ASCA Political Ecologies Seminar in hosting interdisciplinary artist and science historian Edna Bonhomme and professor, researcher and writer J.T. Roane for a panel and discussion on their research into ecologies of vulnerability and resistance. The conversation focussed on the politics of urbanisation and public health as larger themes from which to dive into localised histories. The program was moderated by UvA’s Political Ecologies co-director Jeff Diamanti.


Magazine Launch: Kunstlicht – The Worldliness of Oil

6 October 2021, 19:30-21:30

Editors-in-chief: Joyce Poot, Anna Sejbæk Torp-Pedersen

During the launch of Kunstlicht Magazine’s issue titled The Worldliness of Oil: Recognition and Relations, the CICC tribunal hosted a reading from Clementine Edwards and speaks with artist Tanja Engelberts, writer Niloufar Nematollahi and researcher Ruby de Vos, all introduced by the guest editors and curators Anne Szefer Karlsen and Helga Nyman. This Issue of Kunstlicht Magazine delves into how oil continues to shape individual experiences and national identities, propelling conflict and creating disparate economic opportunities.
Ashley Maum, part of Framer Framed’s research and production team, contributed to the issue with an article focusing on the presence of oil in the Court for Intergenerational Climate Crimes. The article condenses (and deepens) the research analysis in the author’s master’s thesis, which used the CICC as one of two case studies. Read the article here.

In 2021 the Museum Night Amsterdam came back in physical form with an edition centred around the theme ‘activism, an act of joy and resilience’. Framer Framed participated in the event in collaboration with EAST&, an initiative by Framer Framed, Nowhere, Plein Theater, Q Factory and De Rode Loper Op School that connects local residents, cultural organisations and the many talented and diverse creatives of Amsterdam-East. For the Museum Night, Framer Framed invited local critical collectives that have made joy the center of their practice, such as Art Harder, Cat Smits and DJ Mr Winter, and collaborated with Het Fort van Sjakoo and KIOSK Rotterdam which curated the bookshop of Framer Framed for the event.

The public was also guided through to the two exhibitions taking place at Framer Framed: Powerplay – Deals All Over by social rebellion label We Sell Reality and Court for International Climate Crimes, where visitors were confronted with two of the most trying crises of our times, respectively the failing European asylum policy and climate change. Between 20:00-20:30 and 22:30-00:00, researchers from the CICC tribunal led five-minute tours across the space, where visitors would meet the extinct animals, plants and ammonite fossils populating the exhibition space.

The Climate Crisis is a Colonial Crisis – article by Roos van der Lint

24 November 2021

In an article written by art historian Roos van der Lint for De Groene Amsterdammer, the author gives an extensive account on the context of the exhibition and its initiators and identifies the CICC as a project that deals primarily with the deep ties between the Dutch State and its colonial past.

Watch the live stream of the event here.

ASKV organised a week-long program to share what it is like to be an undocumented refugee in Amsterdam. As part of this week, a storytelling evening Home is a story you carry on your back took place at the CICC space where we listened to folktales from ASKV community.

Featuring tellers of folk stories from Niger, Nigeria, Iran and St. Eustatius, we share the roots of people in a celebration of the culture that comes here to live in Amsterdam. All the tellers in the performance have participated in a 6-week programme by Simon Hodges for undocumented migrants together from ASKV PAO. During a difficult year, the course provided a refuge where they could express themselves, enjoy art and remember their culture with pride. Learn more about ASKV’s Refugee Week here.


Lecture: The Colonisation of the Future by David van Reybrouck

8 Januari 2022, 15:00-17:00

The YouTube streaming link is accessible here.

For the event, cultural historian, archaeologist and writer David Van Reybrouck delivered a lecture based on his text The Colonisation of the Future. Living on the brink of the climate catastrophe, which he wrote as a contribution to Leiden University’s annual Huizinga lecture. After the lecture, a live discussion was moderated by Art historian Meta Knol.

Although interest in colonisation has grown throughout the West in recent years, it is mostly limited to historical colonialism. Little attention is paid to the ways in which we colonise the future. However, this is done with the same ruthlessness and short-sightedness with which regions around the world were invaded in earlier times. The theme of the lecture fits perfectly within the framework of the CICC, where the lecture was held – that is, the way in which humanity is currently plundering and enslaving future generations, and the fact that violence is not limited to humans but affects all life on earth.

In December 2020, Framer Framed hosted an interview with David Van Reybrouck about his book Revolusi that can be viewed here (in Dutch).

De livestream van het evenement A Seat for the Sea is hier te vinden.

De mogelijkheid en noodzaak van samenwerking tussen soorten bij het beheer van het planetaire landschap werd verder uitgewerkt tijdens de conferentie A Seat for the Sea (Een zetel voor de zee). Het evenement werd georganiseerd door een in Nederland gevestigd interdisciplinair collectief, de Ambassade van de Noordzee, opgericht in 2018 in Den Haag als een collectief van makers, denkers en activisten wier onderzoek bekijkt of rechten voor de Noordzee haar zelfbeschikking dichterbij kunnen brengen. De Ambassade van de Noordzee werkt aan case studies om te zien hoe een gemeenschap van menselijke en niet-menselijke entiteiten kan worden samengebracht om weg te sturen van de ecologische crisis waar de mondiale samenleving mee te maken heeft. De organisatie heeft onderzoeksprojecten geïnitieerd zoals Stem voor de Paling in Amsterdam, gericht op het bevorderen van meer-dan-menselijke samenwerking op een lokaal niveau.

De conferentie A Seat for the Sea was expliciet geworteld in een activistische houding ten opzichte van de milieuproblematiek; in feite was het doel van het evenement de affectieve en cognitieve betrokkenheid te versterken van de samenleving als geheel bij industriële en investeringsprojecten zoals diepzeemijnbouw. De Ambassade voor de Noordzee voegt uiteindelijk haar stem bij die van de andere CICC contribuanten, door luidkeels te roepen om een oplossing voor de algemene ecologische noodsituatie in de vorm van een verschuiving van de macht van mensenhanden naar de collectieve handen van de natuur.

Activism Archive

The CICC appeared on #ActivismArchive, a series in which Framer Framed highlights artists’ works from previous exhibitions and their relation to climate and environmental activism. The series was initiated by Ashley Maum in 2020 as a way of supporting the Fridays for Future climate strike online. The archive hopes to convey the power and possibility art holds in the face of struggle.


Interviews

Additionally, writer Vidur Sethi spoke with Radha D’Souza and Jonas Staal. Read the interview featured on the STIR, an international architecture, new media, and design platform.

Stephanie Bailey interviewed Radha D’Souza and Jonas Staal for Art Papers. Read the interview here.

AI Murmurings – A conversation between Jonas Staal and Radha D’Souza and Slow Research Lab

Slow Research Lab, a multidisciplinary research and curatorial platform based in the Netherlands, produced as part of its podcast AI Murmurings an episode in collaboration with Jonas Staal and Radha D’Souza on the CICC, which you can find here.

The conversation addressed questions as: What if we approached AI from an interdependent, intergenerational perspective? How do the structures and mentalities that have brought humans and non-humans alike to the brink of extinction permeate the technologies that have become so integral to our daily lives? Could a more conscious, ‘comradely’ approach to AI’s help repair the damage that has been done and move us closer to the worlds we want to create?


Reviews

The Court for Intergenerational Climate Crimes has been reviewed and find place on Dutch media and online platforms several times:

A thorough court report by Tobias Dias on the Court for Intergenerational Climate Crimes (CICC) is published in Texte Zur Kunst. Read the report here.


Presentation of the CICC verdicts with the Society of Arts

On Monday 13 June 2022 Framer Framed in collaboration with the Society of Arts (AvK) presented Climate Narratives: The Intergenerational Climate Crimes Act. The event included the announcement of the verdicts in the CICC hearings held in October 2021. The programme took place at the Trippenhuis of the Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). Led by CICC initiators Radha D’Souza and Jonas Staal, the evening featured responses from Linda Steg (University of Groningen) and Daphina Misiedjan (Erasumus University Rotterdam), moderated by Hicham Khalidi (Director, Jan van Eyck Academie), reflecting on the verdicts as well as the guiding statute of the CICC: The Intergenerational Climate Crimes Act.

Climate Narratives is a new public series by the Society of Arts, in which artists enter into dialogue with scientists, researchers, lawyers and activists to propose new imaginaries of climate justice. Facts are essential, but facts need narratives to become affective and therefore effective. Climate Narratives thus aims to introduce factful stories in defense of living worlds for all.

Climate Narratives is part of the monthly webinar series Klimaat Van Alle Kanten (Climate from all Sides) of The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW).


Future iterations of CICC

In November 2021, part of the CICC traveled to Kunsthalle Münster and was part of the exhibition Nimmersatt? Imagining Society without Growth.

In August a 15-meter Comrades in Extinction tower was built on Kansalaistori Square, consisting of images of extinct animals, facing the parliament building of Helsinki. The tower turned into a live festival of remembrance and resistance that calls for regeneration of life and species. Future iterations of the CICC are now being planned in Seoul and more!
