gREen : Sampling Color – Farbe Vermessen
An Art & Science Symposium
What is ‘green’? Are we ‘green’? And is it the vegetative world at all? Are algae ‘superfoods’, environmental pests – or both? Is biodiesel green? Beyond the rampant ‘greenwashing’ of our times, artists and scientists in this symposium get to the bottom of the increasingly uncritically accepted symbolism of ‘green’ – as a RE-mix and RE-evaluation of contradictions and paradoxes.

What is ‘green’? Are we ‘green’? And is it the vegetative world at all? With monumental biotechnical installations, olfactory portraits of trees and the chemical re-enactment of historical toxic pigments, this garden proposed by Muffathalle Munich, curated by Jens Hauser, fosters debates in climate politics in the field of tension between art, nature and science.
