"Earthbound – In Dialogue with Nature" presents works by internationally renowned artists that reflect on and draw attention to urgent environmental issues with an emphasis on the complex relationship between human activity and the ecosystem. The exhibition proposes solutions and alternative models for a more sustainable coexistence with our environment.
The exhibition spotlights Artists that implement media, technologies and technoscientific methods in their works. Through a creative use of digital media and new technologies – artificial intelligence, virtual reality, interactive and immersive installations, multimedia sculptures and video installations - the audience is invited to engage in critical dialogue, challenging the narrative which positions humankind at the heart of creation. We are encouraged to surrender egocentric perspectives we have towards the planet and rediscover our relationship with nature.
