What is the biggest threat? A scientific phenomenon that can appear distant and far away, or its negation and the negation of international cooperation? The exhibition showcases the results of the research on the topic of climate change, during the last weeks of the American 45th Presidential Elections. Donald Trump appeared as one of the most influential actors in the discussion, and his opinions on the topic of climate change were highly discussed by online news outlets in the United States.

We organized a fake event where Donald Trump did his own speech about climate change. The event was sponsorized on social media as Instagram where people could find picture of the making off.

The exhibition showcases the results of a month-long research on the topic of climate change, during the last weeks of the American 45th Presidential Elections. Donald Trump appeared as one of the most influential actors in the discussion, and his opinions on the topic of climate change were highly discussed by online news outlets in the United States. Starting with the introduction to the roadmap, explaining how the research was conducted, attendees will be able to explore the complex topic of climate change through the eyes of Donald Trump. They will have the opportunity to stand on his podium and see how what he said during the presidential campaign impacted the general discussion on climate change. The title of the exhibition comes from Donald Trump’s quote “Obama thinks that global warming is the biggest threat in the world today”. Donald Trump, one of the most famous climate change denier in the world, thinks that global warming is not a troublesome issue for humanity. The aim of the exhibition is to relate the figure of Donald Trump to the idea of threat leading visitors to reflect on the entity of danger. What’s the real biggest threat afflicting the world?
