Current questions about the degree of damage to and possible ways of healing our home, the Earth, are as pressing as ever. Climate change, as the biggest global problem, along with its effects on migration, water supply, and other issues are the greatest global challenges economically, politically, and socially. Renewable energy sources and more sustainable ways of using the Earth’s resources, as well as new technologies, counteract this to an insufficient degree.

This group exhibition shows various approaches to artistic engagement with the vulnerability of nature and a respectful and responsible interaction with the Earth.
