Is part of the DAAD funded post documenta project. 

The exhibition project:

The space of the natural history museum shows in different ways the forms of survival and adaptation in the animal, plant and human world, which often decide over life and death. Institutions such as museums, galleries and actors in the art world are also forced to deal with the current crisis and its effects: They expand their offers to the virtual space of experience. The resulting short-term oversupply of digital artefacts seems to overlay the already endangered enjoyment of art even more. It is now becoming more obvious how these institutions and their producers, namely the artists, seem to submit to the exploitation strategies of fewer online companies. Regarding this, with this project we are questioning how a "digital Institutional Critique" can be formulated.




My work Postnaturalism is dealing with the human being as the ultimate source of value? A scene describing a postmodern access to nature and an outlook to the anthropocentric way of ruling the world. A confrontation with ethical approaches.

An experience in a safe environment, close to nature. - enjoy!
You find yourself in a space designed for pleasure, but not being pleasant. You can’t exit the room you are in but you are also not invited to lay down and enjoy the Spa treatments. Crabs and toads, customized to the glossy Spa appearance, crawling towards you obtrusively telling you about the best spa offers. You got yourself into an unsatisfying situation - how does it make you feel?
