JUST NATURE

March 17 to May 26, 2019

 

Artist talk

May 23, 2019, 6 P.M. at Kunstforum of the TU Darmstadt

The exhibition JUST NATURE in the spring of 2019 will deal with concepts of freedom that are reflected in the relationship between man and nature. Which images of nature are prevalent in contemporary culture and how is the human body represented in the landscape? The exhibition JUST NATURE in the Kunstforum of the TU Darmstadt compares the predominantly digital life with the question of the relationship between man and nature and enquires into possible social utopias beyond the Internet and the virtual world.

In our exhibition LOST IN TRANSITION at the Kunstforum TU Darmstadt – From Fugitive, Ephemeral (September 24 to December 10, 2017), the American artist William Lamson´s video work “In the roaring garden” discusses the thoughts of the transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862). Thoreau described the question of the possibility of a simple life in nature, a remarkably current theme, in his 1854 published book “Walden-Or Life in the Woods”. These suggestions are taken up in JUST NATURE.
