Earthbound – In Dialogue with Nature

Global warming is rapidly progressing. It has been factually proven to be largely man-made and that human activity heavily influences biological, geological and atmospheric processes on earth. The exhibition Earthbound presents 18 artworks by internationally renowned artists that spark reflection on urgent environmental themes, especially in relation to the complex relationship between humans and the ecosystem.

 

The works on view span from tentative blueprints for solutions and alternative models for a more sustainable coexistence with our environment to inquiries into the use of digital tools for a sustainable treatment of our resources. Accordingly, artistic practices employing media, technologies and technoscientific methods stand at the centre of the exhibition. Their creative application of digital media and new technologies – from artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), interactive and immersive installations, multimedia sculptures and video installations – invites the audience to experience and engage.

 

In concert, these works critically challenge the notion that humans are at the centre of creation, encouraging us to surrender our egocentric perspective and rediscover our relationship with nature on this planet. The exhibition title draws attention to the essential fact that we only have this one earth. Where better to stage our connection with it than in the former warehouse for the raw materials in Esch-Belval?

 

Earthbound: In Dialogue with Nature is organised in collaboration with HEK (House of Electronic Arts) and is curated by Sabine Himmelsbach, director of HEK and Boris Magrini, Head of Programme at HEK. 

 

The exhibition is accompanied by a programme of public events, including guided tours and workshops. A catalogue published by Hatje Cantz will be released in Summer 2022
