Precarious Mountains

Zeitgenössische Positionen zu Svalbard / Contemporary Perspectives on Svalbard

Kunsthalle Recklinghausen, Recklinghausen

11. February 2023 17:00

The exhibition brings together a group of international artists, Stein Henningsen, Bianca Hisse, Shahrzad Malekian and Lena von Goedeke, who deal with the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard in various ways. Their works explore both the radically changing landscape and its imagery, as well as the history of the mining industry. The aesthetics of machines and people shaped by nature and technology, as well as the sociopolitical realities of the concept of the "North," are topics discussed in this exhibition. Bituminous coal is among many remarkable connections between the two places, a Kunsthalle in the Ruhr area and the Svalbard archipelago near the North Pole.
