Anastasia Samoylova at KUNST HAUS WIEN

After Us, The Flood

16.09.20-14.02.21

Dwindling glaciers and polar caps, rising sea levels and entire land areas reduced to steppes: the repercussions of man-made climate change have long become visible for us all to see. The 21 Austrian and international artists featured at the exhibition illustrate through photography and video the ecological consequences of our growth-orientated economic system at the global level. Often produced during years of research and collaboration with scientists, their works lend a visual form to the abstract processes and complex correlations of the climate crisis. They move us at an emotional level. Nach uns die Sintflut (After Us, the Flood) uses the resources of art to highlight the urgency of the need for sustainable action.
