Climate protection with displacement. Wash my fur, but don’t get me wet.64th exhibition of GG3 3.5.2024 – 14.6.2024
The majority of society wants climate protection, but does not want to change. It becomes nervous, susceptible to fossil lobby campaigns, superstitions and right-wing influences.
People are in favor of doing something about man-made global warming, but they still want to fly on vacation. One denies one’s own fossil addiction. The other countries, the politicians, should take action against the climate crisis. People don’t want to see their own responsibility as voters for political parties and as consumers of flights, cars and goods who cause CO₂ emissions. Of course, something should change, just not in your own life. Science calls this behavior cognitive dissonance.
The artworks in the gallery and front garden are intended to refer to the generic term “displacement of man-made global warming”, outside to the displacement of specific problems of the locations:
1. park path at the Waldemar bridge: Cyclists and scooter riders displace the driving ban in the park
2. park path south of the lake: the greenery on the walls is being damaged for graffiti. The sprayers suppress the importance of the climbing greenery for people.
3rd, 4th sidewalks near the stairs into the park: Litter is dumped or thrown down. The actors suppress the fact that the litter usually disturbs pedestrians and residents.
5th lake: The lake is over-fertilized due to the prohibited feeding of aquatic animals. The feeders suppress the adverse effects on animals, water quality and the plants of the lake.
