World of Matter, Mabe Bethonico, Ursula Biemann, Uwe H. Martin et al.

Water. Coltan. Coal. Oil. Air. Lithium. Fish. Rice. E-waste. Soil. Gold. Plastic. Cotton. Tantalum. All these extensively mined raw materials are the focus of the international research, exhibition and weaving project World of Matter. Drawing reference to notions such as “a world that matters” as well as the world of material processes, World of Matter offers a forum to artists, photojournalists and documentary filmmakers, architects and programmers who have already worked extensively in the field of raw materials and its related local policies to cooperate with theoreticians who conduct research in geography, art history and cultural theory.
