The works in the Eco-Visionaries exhibition present alternative approaches to, and ideas about the relationship between human beings and the environmental, social and mental ecologies - systems that are intrinsically linked and interactive. The participating artists propose more sustainable attitudes towards the place of human beings on this earth.
The exhibition includes video works, sound works, drawing, books and installations by: Ursula Biemann, (b. 1955, Switzerland) and Paulo Tavares (b. 1980, Brazil), Carolina Caycedo (b. 1978, the UK), the international group Futurefarmers, Marjetica Potrč (b. 1953, Slovenia), Samuel Roturier (b. 1982, France), Erik Sjödin (f. 1979, Sweden), Leena Valkeapää (b. 1964, Finland) and Oula-Antti Valkeapää (b. 1970, Finland) and Elin Már Øyen Vister (b. 1976, Norway).
The book Eco-Visionaries accompanies the exhibition, and was produced in a collaboration between Bildmuseet; MAAT in Lisboa; HeK in Basel; and LABoral in Gijón. With thanks to the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
