Examples to Follow: Expeditions in Aesthetics and Sustainability
Artistic questions and concepts for action increasingly aim at the multi-layered domains of ecology as well as towards enlarging their social resonance space. Sustainability requires a cooperative expansion of perception. Hence, the boundaries between artistic and technical creativity, between feasibility and idea are deliberately suspended. Sensuality is the connecting element in the creations and presentations of visual artists, inventors and scientists as well as in exemplary works from the fields of design and architecture, but also in instances of sustainable economic activities, each of which in their own way challenge the individual dimension of action. Besides participatory projects and networks, the exhibition presents technical innovations and materials in the areas of renewable energies, climate change and re/upcycling, as well as in examples of sustainable management, each challenging the individual dimension of action in their own way. The exhibition is curated by Adrienne Goehler and supported by the Goethe Insitut- Max Mueller Bhavan Mumbai.
