After the destruction of both world wars in the 20th century, ruins have a permanent place in the collective memory. Caused by the decline of heavy industries once flourishing areas have transformed into abandoned deserts of rubble with empty, damaged buildings. Worldwide political instability and omnipresent media images of destruction practically deliver ruins right to our door. In contrast to the traditional view of ruins, a lyrical contemplation about a distant past, today the focus is on their concrete causes. The artists in the exhibition Contemporary Ruins address ruins as indicators of political, economic, or ecological processes and challenge how they stimulate aesthetic speculations about the future.

Vernissage: Saturday, 21st October 2017, 5 to 9 p.m.

Exhibition period: Sunday 22nd October 2017 to Sunday, 11th February 2018
