In five short videos, the curator Dominique Gauzin-Müller gives insights into the exhibition: About unusual plant fibres like fungi used as building materials, locally grown straw and hemp working as insulation material and trees, as still-living plants, becoming architecture.
The ifa galleries' programme focus 'Environment' looks at traces left by colonisation and globalisation in our environment and encounters worldwide, local forms of resistance. The destruction of ecosystems, land grabbing, and the associated obliteration of cultural identities are addressed. Simultaneously, the strength of indigenous concepts of life and nature for shaping the future becomes apparent.
