As a Green Museum, KUNST HAUS WIEN regularly dedicates major photographic presentations to key ecological themes. The main exhibition in autumn presents a selection of artistic positions that focus on the effects of climate change on the ecosystem. The works in the exhibition show and analyse the impact the global climate crisis has on glaciers, sea and marine regions, considering both scientific and political aspects. The images of disappearing glaciers, rising sea levels, increasingly acidified oceans and desertificated land areas are not least emotionally touching, and once again bear witness to the urgency of the topic.

Nach uns die Sintflut [After Us, the Flood] brings together current photographic and cinematic work by 21 international and domestic artists. Their works, often the result of extensive research and close collaborations with leading scientists, throw into relief the ecological effects our way of life has on different regions of the earth. Some also highlight its socio-political and social consequences, or outline future scenarios. The artists draw attention to people in those regions already most affected by the consequences of climate change, and illustrate the global connections between our lifestyle and the ecological, social and economic problems we face.

Artists: Benoit Aquin, Ursula Biemann, Axel Braun, Solmaz Daryani, Verena Dengler, Michael Goldgruber, Justin Brice Guariglia, Stephan Huber, Genoveva Kriechbaum, Anouk Kruithof, Bénédicte Kurzen, Douglas Mandry, Benedikt Partenheimer, Sarker Protick, Gabriele Rothemann, Anastasia Samoylova, Christina Seely, Nicole Six & Paul Petritsch, Frank Thiel, Angela Tiatia

KUNST HAUS WIEN. Museum Hundertwasser

Vienna’s first “green” museum dedicates large special exhibitions to contemporary photography. Again and again, thematic photographic exhibitions also focus on ecology and sustainability. In the “Garage”, various projects are shown that today are at the interface between art and nature – an aspect that museum founder Hundertwasser had already anchored in his work.
