The artworks in the Eco-Visionaries exhibition present alternative views and ideas on humans' relation to nature ecologies, social ecologies, and mental ecologies - systems that are inextricably linked and affect each other. The participating artists propose more sustainable attitudes to man's place on Earth.
The exhibition includes video works, sound works, drawings, 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 is produced in collaboration between Bildmuseet; MAAT in Lisboa; HeK in Basel; and LABoral in Gijón. With thanks to the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
