Exhibition 12.4. until 11.5.2013

Is Ghost a Dividend? Do used clothes fit me? Do I want bulging or empty pockets? How about more being than having? Will everything be marketed in the future? Is consumption the new religion? The decision to buy or not to buy has lasting and unsustainable social, economic and environmental impacts on me and far away.

The exhibition of ten German and international artists seeks serious and humorous answers to these questions with installations, photos, paintings, graphics, collages, videos and sound. At the same time, artist talks and talks on topics such as mobile phone use or second-hand will take place.
