Introducing Esch2022’s program of exhibitions in the Möllerei, Esch-Belval
Ars Electronica Garden Esch-sur-Alzette presents the ongoing collaborative work of Esch2022 – European Capital of Culture with ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, HEK (House of Electronic Arts), and Ars Electronica in the planning of three major exhibitions.
Presented between February and November 2022 in the newly refurbished Möllerei building, the three exhibitions will showcase the work of over 70 contemporary artists and address the important issues of our time.
The first exhibition, Hacking Identity – Dancing Diversity, presents a vivid kaleidoscope of artistic notions of identity that reflect upon the particular and the universal, the aesthetic and the intellectual, the historical and the futuristic, the human and the non-human. It is organized in collaboration with ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe and is curated by Anett Holzheid and Peter Weibel.
The second exhibition addresses the impact of human activities on the Earth’s collapsing ecosystems. It gathers artworks that propose alternative models of understanding and interacting with the world. It is organized in collaboration with HEK (House of Electronic Arts) and curated by Sabine Himmelsbach and Boris Magrini.
The third exhibition focuses on the importance of creative thinking and artistic approaches in scientific research and industrial production to create innovative, sustainable and ethical solutions to the struggles and issues of contemporary societies. It is organized in collaboration with Ars Electronica and curated by Martin Honzik and Laura Welzenbach.
