7 Seeds Yokohama is the first stage of a series of projects on critical sustainability around the globe. Artists from different countries converse with each other and young generations through artworks and designs. In the works, we seek critical reflections on how we can plant the future. The selected works will be printed and presented at an exhibition at Zou No Hana Terrace in Yokohama, Japan. 7 Seeds is created by the Hamburg-based artist and curator Michael Kress and Zou No Hana Terrace and Portjourneys, a worldwide network of art spaces in harbor cities.

The world is currently in a turbulent era. Wars, disasters, and environmental problems are becoming increasingly serious, and things are changing rapidly with the evolution of AI and technology. The seven messages are important keywords for connecting the world to the next generation, and the exhibition will provide hints for implementing them and opportunities for dialogue.

The 7 Seeds Cluster:

  1. CRITICAL SUSTAINABILITY IN ART
  2. HOLISTIC URBANITY – SOCIAL-CENTERED TRANSFORMATION ART
  3. PARTICIPATION & COLLABORATIVE DEMOCRACY
  4. DIVERSITY, OPEN INCLUSION, AND SELF-DETERMINATION
  5. ARTISTIC AND CULTURAL PARTICIPATION
  6. RIGHT OF LIFELONG LEARNING/WILL WE BE BORN AS ARTISTS?
  7. UNIVERSAL CULTURAL EMPATHY (EMPATHETIC INTELLIGENCE VS AI)
