The effects of today’s consumer society on our environment are omnipresent. Be it that we experience it with our own senses and discuss it in everyday life, or that we can follow the relevant reports every day in the media.
Based on selected examples from the past 40 years, the exhibition presents contemporary artists who deal with the mutual influences between the increasingly globalized consumer society and its environment.
