Ruben Fowkes of Translocal at art and sustainability blog on Gustav Metzger's appearance at the Forum:

The last presentation was by the veteran conceptual artist Gustav Metzger, who used the categories of ‘presience’ and the ‘extreme’ to approach the notion of apocalpyse, looking back to moments in modern art history, such as Picasso’s Guernica, while picking up on amusing but significant slices of life culled from the British press, such as a report that Abramovich is buying a house in Kensington, in order to pull it down and build a bigger one, but bomb proof. His message was in the end quite pessimistic, as he said that no one wants to realise that ‘there is no permanent life on earth.’
