Zur Nachahmung empfohlen!

Zollverein heritage site, Essen

– 4 September 2014



Artists’ takes on topics such as renewable forms of energy, climate change, recycling, upcycling and sustainable development are currently on display in Essen, in the grounds of the Zollverein heritage site. “Zur Nachahmung empfohlen! presents artistic practices that combine experience and working methods used in environmental initiatives with the approaches of the artists, providing a space for the artists to present their own take on environmental topics such as renewable forms of energy, climate change, recycling, upcycling and sustainable development,” says the curator, Adrienne Goehler. Since 2010 this exhibition has travelled all over the world, and over 50 international exhibits from the fields of art, science, film and architecture have been on display since 18 June in Essen.


New works by regional artists are added at each new exhibition venue. This time around, the artists involved are Peter Reichenbach, who has experimented with traditional colours made from plants from the international Sevengardens dye garden network, Steven Emmanuel, who will live for a month without electricity and gas during the exhibition, as part of the Artist in Residence Programme of the RWE-Stiftung, and Emine Ercihan, who was awarded the Canon Professional Photo Prize for her photographic project Food Waste.

The exhibition is accompanied by free guided tours, workshops and a multidisciplinary symposium.
