"Think we must” says prominent quote of Virginia Woolf. However, thinking is merely a first footstep, since fundamental changes appear only if thoughts are carried into actions. Therefore, what can we do beside thinking to save our planet?
It has become evident that human influence on environment reached a hazardous stage.
There is a need of immediate change in order to minimalize devastation of the natural ecosystem. Recently, we have received a few serious wake up calls. In 2016 more than 15,000 scientists from 184 countries (including most of living Nobel laureates) signed 'Warning to humanity' listing issues to be undertaken in order to save Earth. Donna Haraway in her convincing statement “Anthropocene, Capitalocene, Chthulucene” pointed firmly that if we continue this massive destruction we need to take the responsibility for a complete annihilation of the planet. Her striking question “whether we are Eichmanns of the 21st century?” will be verified within next decades. However, the time to prevent is now.
The exhibition is a showcase of nine artists whose work digs deep into political and environmental narratives defining our global world. With strength and determination, they make work that unflinchingly challenges social structures and depict abuses of power on our natural environment.
