Climate protection with repression. Wash my fur, but don’t get me wet.

Busch house (C) T.A. Exhibition

Bush house (C) T.A.

64th exhibition in Gallery and Park 3.5. – 14.6.2024

Exhibition
in gallery: Tuesdays and Fridays 5-8 p.m., in the park Fri., 24.5., 4-6 p.m. and Fri., 14.6., 4-6 p.m.

The artworks in the gallery and front garden are intended to refer to the generic term “repression of man-made global warming”, outside to the repression of specific problems of the locations in the park.

The majority of society wants climate protection, but does not want to change. It becomes nervous, susceptible to fossil lobby campaigns, superstitions and right-wing influences.

People are in favor of doing something about man-made global warming, but they still want to fly on vacation. You deny your own fossil addiction. The other countries, the politicians, should take action against the climate crisis. People don’t want to see their own responsibility as voters for political parties and as consumers of flights, cars and goods who cause CO₂ emissions. Of course, something should change, just not in your own life. Science calls this behavior cognitive dissonance.

Gallery

The works in the gallery and front garden refer to the generic term “repression of man-made global warming”. Locations 6. and 7. in the plan.

Park

Works refer to the displacement of problems in the park. Dates in the park Fri, 5/24, 4-6pm and Fri, 6/14, 4-6pm. Locations:

1st park path at the Waldemar Bridge: Cyclists and scooter riders displace the driving ban in the park.
2. park path south of the lake: the greenery on the walls is being damaged for graffiti. The sprayers suppress the importance of the climbing greenery for people.
3rd, 4th sidewalks near the stairs into the park: Litter is dumped or thrown down. The actors repress fact that the litter usually disturbs pedestrians and residents.
5th lake: The lake is over-fertilized due to the prohibited feeding of aquatic animals. The feeders suppress the adverse effects on animals, water quality and the plants of the lake.
