Global warming, mass extinctions, ecosystem collapse, all kinds of catastrophes, even the threat of the disappearance of the human race ….. everything is going wrong. Although we don’t know all there is to know about the state of our earth or what the future may hold, scientists are quite clear: we know enough to be aware that our future is no longer very attractive. So, why are we doing so little to change the situation?
With the support of Dominique Bourg, philosopher, Tobias Brosch, psychologist and Cristina Soriano, linguist, the Museum invites you to examine people’s emotions and behaviour to better understand their impact within and in the face of the environmental crisis. Our approach is to draw together artistic and scientific perspectives to throw light onto an ecological situation and review the solutions. Drawings, photography, words, interviews and the Museum’s collection of natural objects hold a dialogue in scenarios that we wanted to be as ecological as possible. That is why we have recycled former settings and have chosen materials with low environmental impact.
We must re-think our relationship with the earth and learn from our experience and knowledge. We must act, that is, change our excessive behaviours in order to live in balance with nature, and thereby contribute to the well-being of all living creatures whether plants, animals or humans.
Live with the earth, not against it.
