Transformation

Transformation to the Good Life

Group Global 3000 is preparing two visions for 2022 in the exhibitions “Transformation” and “The Good Life”.

1 April – 20 May, 2022 we begin with the exhibition “Transformation” and call  international  artists to send us applications.

The euphoria regarding technological progress is over. We see that unlimited growth does not fit to a limited earth.  We are already experiencing the first responses from the natural world.  The dream of endless growth is coming to an end and at best will lead to transformation.

By transformation, we mean the process that leads globally to a good life for people and sustainable use of natural resources. We see social and cultural change as feasible, because we have the economic, technical, and scientific prerequisites. Yet this life is difficult to imagine for most people. Convention stands in the way of transformation.

We want to illustrate the picture of the good life in the future. A framework has been sketched out by economists and natural scientists: Sufficiency reduces production and consumption, efficiency uses material and energy more productively, and consistency includes nature-friendly material cycles, recycling and waste avoidance. The value of nature appears in the overall economic balance sheets. The gap between rich and poor is closed. The economy is transforming into one of post-growth. We live in a way that is fit for our grandchildren.

The vision of social change and a sustainable and good life gives strength for the way there. Thus, transformation is also an aesthetic project. The necessary changes require the creativity of the entire society. The potential of art lies precisely in opening up new spaces for thoughts and making transformation imaginable.

A second call for applications for “The Good Life” will follow.

Endless Summer

Exhibition 15.10. -10.12.2021

The permanent high over Europe creates vacation joy at home and crop failures due to drought.  Will the sensual desire for paradise be fulfilled? One enjoys lots of sun, always being outside and vacation at home.  A hedonistic dream.

However, the climate crisis is felt ambivalently. “Higher fuel prices are felt immediately in the wallet, but climate change comes insidiously.  “Heat deaths, devastation from heavy rains in 2021, fires worldwide from drought. In Canada, people are afraid of summer because of fires.

Continuing on without personal and political change is becoming more and more difficult. People hold on to fossil comfort, suppress the crisis, point to other countries that should change.

In a public call for entries, we invited artists internationally to submit contributions for the theme described above for a group exhibition in our exhibition spaces.

We thank the artists for the many applications and have selected 17 international artists from Austria, Bulgaria, Portugal, Finland, USA and Germany.

We look forward to exciting, joyful and stimulating encounters with guests and the artists!

Artistic work on the state of our society and its relationship with naturewith over 50 works by Tom Albrecht from 1965 – 2021. actions, photographs, text, installations, moving objects, video, Super 8 .

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.
