– 24 February 2019

As part of the large-scale undertaking The Anthropocene Project, this exhibition uses photography, murals and film installations to impressively demonstrate the impact of human activity on our planet.



 

The Gotthard Base Tunnel, the open-cast mine in North Rhine-Westphalia or the Dandora landfill in Nairobi are just a few visible examples of the pervasive impact of human activity on nature. Anthropocene is the unofficial name for the current geochronological epoch, in which our own species is the decisive factor for the state and development of the earth. Artists Edward Burtynsky, Jennifer Baichwal, and Nicholas de Pencier have jointly initiated The Anthropocene Project, where they use art, virtual reality, augmented reality and scientific research to make this phenomenon visible. The exhibition “Anthropocene” shows works by these three artists, which impressively demonstrate to the visitor the effects of our age on nature.
