With LandRush, the two document the social and ecological consequences of global agriculture. They work with farmers, fishermen, scientists, indigenous farmers and activists to explore issues such as seed, water and land rights, environmental justice, climate change and the future of agriculture worldwide. Both global contexts and individual approaches are highlighted. Frauke Huber and Uwe H. Martin use artistic, journalistic and scientific strategies to make the different realities of life intellectually and emotionally tangible. Their many years of research and recordings have resulted in publications, interactive apps, and the atmospherically and content-wise impressive spatial multi-channel installations that are presented in the MQ Freiraum.
