Trees, two men, oil tanks - greenwashing

Trees, two men, oil tanks, © TA

The exhibition Greenwashing takes a critical view of companies that advertise individual “green” services but do not make their core business sustainable. Outside green-inside black. Is this customer cheating? Does that work for him and the politician? How do greenwashers work?

The exhibition explored these questions with installation, photography, painting, video and computer game. Parallel talks by the exhibiting artists, “On the Criticism of Corporate Sustainability Reports” and “What Can the Customer Do?” took place.
