premiere: 4th of July

Toxic slag heaps, muck, slime and sediments; ash from power plants and volcanoes; broken glass and ceramics. Every year, we produce several million tonnes of such waste. In the third series of exhibitions about the search for new materials, we reach for the dirty and the hazardous. Poisonous and mordant.

Awareness of climate change is becoming increasingly widespread and the news we are receiving about it is increasingly worrisome. Natural resources are running out, the exhaust fumes emitted into the atmosphere have shrouded the world in grey fog; temperatures are rising, forests are burning, rivers are drying up, glaciers are melting.

More information soon in our guide. Premiere on 4th of July!
