About

Eco-Visionaries investigates new media, technologies and techno-scientific methods in the arts and their significance for the perception and awareness of the “ecological.” The group exhibition focuses on the idea of a sustainable approach to the environment and ecological coexistence at a time when everyone, especially the natural sciences and the arts, is talking about the Anthropocene. In this new geochronological epoch, man has become one of the most important factors influencing biological, geological and atmospheric processes on Earth.

Eco-Visionaries presents artistic responses to current challenges, whereby some of the new works were created especially for the context of the exhibition. The exhibition shows how new media and technologies are used, not only to draw attention to ecological problems, but also to develop visionary solutions. Media artists and transmedial arrangements can evoke emotions in the audience and encourage people to get involved. At best, the ability of art to involve people brings about a lasting change in behaviour.
