> DESCRIPTION

The exhibition To the Elements! Aesthetic Phenomena of Climate Change, curated by Alfons Hug, presents several video works by different artists and their vision on the topic of climate change. The weather has always inspired artists and poets and it gave ordinary people an informal start for a conversation. In our days, however, the focus of both conversations and artistic activities shifts from the weather to the climate:
