30.08.2018 - 11.11.2018
Admission: 9 / 6 CHF (red.)
The exhibition addresses the concept of “ecological” and “green” at a time in which everything – particularly the natural sciences and art – speak of the Anthropocene: a new geo-chronological epoch in which the human being has become one of the most important influences on our planet’s biological, geological and atmospheric processes. In doing so, the works address and evaluate earth’s materiality, particularly through the use of measurable data. The exhibition looks at the methods, the means and the possibilities of producing a techno-aesthetic relationship with our environment.
The exhibition is produced in co-operation with several European partners (MAAT, Lisbon/Portugal; MAXXI, Rome/Italy; Bildmuseet, Umea/Sweden; Laboral, Gijon/Spain) and will be presented in all those locations with different thematic emphases.
