Raimar Stange will talk via zoom about the exhibition project „2052 – Kunst zur Klimakatastrophe“ [2052 – Art on the Climate Catastrophe]. This Project is formatting the “exhibition” genre anew. About 30 artists were invited to create leaflets on the subject of “climate catastrophe”. So the focus was on outspoken politically engaging art and not on the creation of obscenely expensive sales pieces and “impartial” l’art pour l’art, to paraphrase Immanuel Kant. These will then distributed across Berlin’s and Athen’s urban area throughout the exhibition period, but crucially without communicating places and times beforehand. The exhibition therefore takes place as an act of transience, fully refraining from event-culture scheduling and resulting media exposure.
