Serpentine Galleries in collaboration with MaerzMusik and Berlin Atonal present Serpentine Cinema & General Ecology: On Earth at The Long Now, with films by Sophia Al-Maria, Matthew Burdis, Alexander George and James Capper, Cao Guimarães and Rivane Neuenschwander, Pierre Huyghe, Karrabing Film Collective, Christelle Lhereux and Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Pedro Neves Marques, Aimée Toledano and Peter Nadin.

The Serpentine’s General Ecology project – the galleries’ long-term and ongoing project researching complexity, posthumanism and climate change, presents a special programme of artist films addressing humans’ impact on the biosphere and the environment. On Earth reflects on machines and infrastructure, toxicity and contagion in the landscape, ghosts, memorials, the performance of absence and questions of care.

Serpentine Cinema & General Ecology: On Earth at The Long Now is curated by Lucia Pietroiusti (Curator, General Ecology, Serpentine) and Kostas Stasinopoulos (Assistant Curator, Live Programmes, Serpentine) with Holly Shuttleworth (Producer, Live Programmes, Serpentine). Advisors: Matthew Burdis and Filipa Ramos (co-curator, The Shape of a Circle in the Mind of a Fish and advisor on the Serpentine’s General Ecology project).
