has always been a great inspiration for artists. But today, in times of global environmental devastation, it is important
and inevitable to elevate artistic practices into tools for activism, empowerment and engagement. The Danube Transformation
Agency for Agency (DTAFA) is formed in order to research and identify how the arts can address climate change and its
effects on the river Danube. Working in close collaboration with scientists, civil society groups, conservationists, plants
and animals, the research wishes to develop and map all the anticipated emergencies that the river Danube might have in the
future, and try to produce a series of experimental - quasi productions, solutions. The research will turn to science, theory
and technology, as well as to history and the role that the Danube had played for different cultures as a totemic, spiritual,
military and ecological touchstone.
The Danube Transformation Agency for Agency (DTAFA) is a fictive, environmental
and socio-artistic organization, which provides services and mediations between species, or more precisely new pathways for
new imaginaries for the Danube ecosystem. It combines visual art, design, science and advocacy for Danube’s future.
The DTAFA are: Alexandra Fruhstorfer, Lena Violetta Leitner, Ege Kökel, Solmaz Farhang and Andrea Palašti.
leader and special advisor: Bernd Kräftner
