The teeth shine. The nuclear power plant dances. The shell shows its treasure. The canister becomes human. The cow’s udder is bulging. Globe flies, the skipping weed too. Homage is paid to the logos. Corona screams. The fossil club threatens.

“Something ironic and slightly absurd resonates there – a special form of wit or poetic humor is inherent in his work, which makes things – even if they weigh heavily – light and thus easier to grasp. Not the moral reproach, but rather the unexpected image, the oblique idea lie in Tom Albrecht’s artistic calculation.” Dr. Peter Funken, 2021.

Tom Albrecht founded Group Global 3000 in 2012 as a project space with a gallery and has curated 53 exhibitions with the team since then.

Flood Today

We regret that our exhibition of 2019 is current again today in 2021. This time, unfortunately, we also have to talk about dead people. It is not the weather, but the climate crisis.

Exhibition, talks, lecture 15.3. – 10.5.2019, Fridays 17- 20 o’clock

Swim well, C T. A. Flood Today

Swim well, C T. A.

Flooded cellars, covered roofs, furniture sinking in the mud. More and more frequently extreme weather events of short duration and high intensity such as heavy rain or storms occur in previously unknown locations and cause millions of damages. Whole fields have been washed away and have silted villages. In the plain, wide areas can quickly become submerged.

Reasons are climate change, increasing surface sealing, increased rainwater drainage through sewer systems, short crop rotations, humus mining and uncovered areas of intensive agriculture. For a long time city planners thought the water was technically manageable. Today, countries, local authorities and citizens are called upon to take precautions. Renaturation measures in waters should make a contribution to flood protection. Rainwater retention basins and flood troughs are set up, the heavy rain risk managed and flood alert levels modeled. Organic farming protects the soil and helps to save rain.

Artists of Flood Today

The exhibition “Flood Today” shows works of art by 14 artists who examine the connection between human intervention and natural disasters. The influence of humans on the earth grows exponentially and leaves very long traces. Rising sea levels, washed-away fields, muddy villages, sunken houses are the result of climate change, increasing soil sealing, increased rainwater drainage and intensive agriculture. The multidisciplinary exhibition shows painting, photography, video, installation, collage and performance on the subject of heavy rain. The strong and often disturbing statements show deep personal concern and artistic expressiveness with painting, video, installation, object, collage, showcase, and performance:

Tom Albrecht, Charlotte Bastian, Thomas Behling, Jörn Birkholz / Stephan Groß, Barbara Czarnojahn, Helga Franz, Amelie von Godin, Gerten Goldbeck, Isabell Kamp,
Maria Korporal, Angela Alexander-Lloyd, Anna Rafetseder,  Rosa Schmidt

Works

Tom Albrecht illustrates in his work how life and material values ​​are destroyed in the heavy rain.
Charlotte Bastian painted how floods in seven Central European countries in 2013 caused days of rain.
Thomas Behling shows in his showcase a picture of the earth at a sea level rise of 60 meters.
Jörn Birkholz / Stephan Groß combine various scenes of triumph and disaster in their surrealistic photomontage in a joyfully ironic vision of an apocalyptic flood.
Barbara Czarnojahn builds her images from biographical material in the field of tension between benefit, threat and beauty.
Helga Franz investigates changes in manipulated landscapes in her aerial photography as a photographer and pilot.
At the finissage Amelie von Godin will perform the creature whose memory still seems to live in the western, upper middle class.
Gerten Goldbeck In their installation, we drown in the flood of data without changing the world.
Isabell Kamp shows a video in which a bust after grabbing two hands steadily breaks up in the water.
Maria Korporal In her experimental video with animation, the climatological events documented by her are intended to be a warning sign for large-scale industry and governments.
Angela Alexander-Lloyd shows a metaphor for our collective lethargic confrontation with the critical issues of climate change.
Anna Rafetseder shows the obvious connection between human intervention and “natural disasters”.
Rosa Schmidt In her performative installation she draws a picture between post-apocalyptic olive branch hope and urban intervention.
