The climate crisis causes floods, forest fires and the extinction of species, a pandemic paralyzes large parts of the world. At the same time, we observe how emissions worldwide are falling due to the lockdown-related standstill and how the situation for the animal world relaxes in some now deserted habitats. How is the future going to look like?
The artist collective Steinbrener/Dempf & Huber deals with this question and develops visions of the future, which it stages in huge dioramas. The artists use the extensive collection of animal preparations of the OÖ Landes-Kultur GmbH as a basis. Their works intensively deal with the precarious relationship between man and nature; they are utopian, ambiguous and sometimes grotesque, full of humorous allusions and quotes from the history of nature, art and pop.
