What is landscape today? We continue to imagine the aesthetic ideal comprising a variety of natural, agricultural and settlement areas. By contrast, modern landscapes are often ‘non-places’. Traces appear there – traces of industrial intervention, changing  borderlines, flight, war or uncontrolled development and mining.

What remains is a remnant of nature, in which ruins bear witness to historical events. Barren landscapes that speak of past violence, degraded to material. At the same time memories (of war) are embodied visibly by 20th century architectural monuments.

The exhibition’s 25 artists and groups of artists grant a voice to landscape. They create current landscape images located between fiction, symbol and documentation, and appeal to our ability to read and decipher them – but also to the imagination and our capacity to mourn.

 
Curated by the museum’s director Eva Schmidt and Kai Vöckler, College of Design (HfG) Offenbach.
