KONTEJNER presents in collaboration with UR Institut and Art workshop Lazareti an exhibtion of selected art works produced within EMAP – European Media Art Platform.
Opening: 09.09.2020 at 7 p.m.
Duration: 10.09. – 13.09.2020.
The works within the Quarantine exhibition are based on natural sciences and cybernetics. Profusely detailed and vastly imaginative, these works conceptualize the frail balance of cohabitation of living beings on Earth. Inspired, on the one hand, by latest scientific research, and the imaginings of posthuman subjectivity, as well as political and ethical assessments about the future, on the other, these works frequently venture into exciting and experimental theories.
By addressing issues such as pollution, interspecies communication, climate change, the posthuman body and the Anthropocene, the works underscore the need for new values and ethical principles. The selected artists are far from being indifferent to life, rather, they create their own visions and narratives, thus integrating the long-disconnected notions of nature and the human.
