The Age of mankind, we create a new epoch of the Earth
The way we live our life is creating a new age, the so called “Anthropocene”. Modern man is present from the deep sea to the edge of the atmosphere and affects the course of evolution. His action will be visible in the distant future. Human activity has a completely new quality since the end of World War II. Thanks to the rapid growth of humanity, mankind has a geological imprint globaly, rather than just being one factor among many. The Age of mankind, we create a new epoch of the Earth
New worldwide geological structures are our cities made of glass and concrete. Agricultural landscapes arise for supplying us with food. To the climate change contribute road trips, flights, freight transport. Plastic, other synthetic materials to radiating elements are ubiquitous in the biosphere and many of them durable over long geological periods. Dams that retain sediments in the upper reaches of rivers have long-term consequences. Ships and planes carry thousands of alien species from one continent to another. The Age of mankind.

* Plastic bags are the canvases of industry, of shopping – capitalism in bag form. They have always served as a proverbial advertising medium with a recognition value. * * In the work “Plastikbeute” by Franziska Harnisch bags become images. As these, they are and remain relicts of a one-time use – from long-forgotten consumer times. They testify to the industrial-global upswing of the shoppering humanity. To the finissage of “Menschenzeit”, auctioneer Anton Krause tells the stories of the respective bag pictures in a performative auction and lets them change their owners, together with their history. *
* Written bids can be made on site or – until 04.11.2016, 6.00 pm,
