Verschwindende Vermächtnisse: Die Welt als Wald - Disappearing Legacies: The World as Forest

Verschwindende Vermächtnisse: Die Welt als Wald - Disappearing Legacies: The World as Forest confronts traditional images of nature in the context of species mass extinction, deforestation, and climate change.
Curators: Anna-Sophie Springer and Etienne Turpin

Verschwindende Vermächtnisse: Die Welt als Wald - Disappearing Legacies: The World as Forest confronts traditional images of nature in the context of species mass extinction, deforestation, and climate change.

Drawing connections from Alfred Russel Wallace’s mid-nineteenth century expeditions to Amazonia and the Malay Archipelago to current issues of environmental transformation, the exhibition presents 14 works of contemporary art alongside rare botanical and zoological specimens. Together, inherited notions of nature are challenged to critically inquire into the legacies resulting from the relentless destruction of highly complex ecosystems. Installations, photographs, films, and sculptures reflect on biodiversity suspended between science and mono-culture.
