ERDUNG. #until.exit / Cubus Kunsthalle Duisburg

From May 5 to July 18, 2024 Cubus Kunsthalle in Duisburg shows besides works by Juliane Hundertmark, Yongbo Zhao and other artists also some new works by me in the group exhibition “Erdung”.

“With the exhibition Erdung. #until.exit, the Cubus Kunsthalle itself wants to become a place of grounding. […]

In retrospect, the man-made age cannot be proud of its achievements if they are directed against human life. So everything must be put to the test, everything must be grounded so that we humans can continue to live as humans.
The exhibited artworks, as well as the Garden of Transience, pose questions and stimulate discussions about the position of humans in the Anthropocene in the face of current situations and crises.”

– Cubus Kunsthalle

The exhibition is part of the 7th theme cycle ERDUNG_aarding of the Rhine-Maas Museum Network and is funded by Kulturraum Niederrhein e.V. as part of the Regional Culture Program NRW.

“The position that non-human animals occupy in our cultural imagination is proof for how easy it is to accept the lower status of some beings without even a second thought.”
