Potential Worlds 1: Planetary Memories in Zürich
7 March 2020 - 11 October 2020
Potential Worlds 1: Planetary Memories is the first in a series of two exhibitions that will explore the relationship between humans and nature. The art gathered in both shows scrutinizes the interactions between man and nature from a variety of angles and limns potential future scenarios of life on earth. The works on view in the first chapter draw attention to the ways in which the environment has been appropriated in the pursuit of power and resources, shedding light on the repercussions for both nature and social fabrics. They also interrogate conceptions of knowledge in the natural sciences that have been developed in the course of man’s power-driven appropriation of the natural world.
Curated by Heike Munder (director Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst) and Suad Garayeva-Maleki (director YARAT Contemporary Art Space). Among artists participating in the group show is Almagul Manlibayeva.
