“It is an irony of fate that just in our time, which might be called the final stage of Enlightenment and the Industrial Age, humankind cannot think and act wisely anymore despite its knowledge. Modern humans do not know nature anymore. They also do not know themselves.” This is what the Indonesian writer and visual artist Arahmaiani writes in her text Thoughts of a Dreaming Nomad. To set something against this missing wisdom is one of the motivations in the fifth and concluding part of the exhibition series. In the frame of the series we traced alternatives to the presently dominant ways of “cultivating“ our planet for a period of more than one year in total and presented artistic production in this context.


Starting from 6 pm., openings take place on this day at Camera Austria, Künstlerhaus KM– Halle für Kunst & Medien, < rotor > und Grazer Kunstverein,; referred to in short as CMRK.
