Buchpräsentation: Toxic Temple

20. Mai, 20:00 - 23:00

An Artistic and Philosophical Adventure into the Toxicity of the Now

Edited by: Anna Lerchbaumer and Kilian Jörg. Part of Lange Nacht der Forschung

Leached soils, acidified seas, polluted atmospheres.
We are haunted by the repressed.
We can no longer escape its poison.

A shrine for the inner contradictions,
absurdities and risks,
a solidarization with the facts.
We enter wastelands instead of unspoiled soil
and let the artifacts speak for themselves.

Colourful assemblages of things that connect the known cosmos,
shaky grounds of new divinity and acrid smells that carry us into the sublime.
Landfills are the new temples.
In a sadistic manner we inhale the here and now.
Transformative forces are released. Free radicals.

Rituals to unmask the chaos beneath the smooth surface.
What changes when we religiously worship the power of toxicity?
Can a cult of pollution establish a cosmic connection in our time of disaster?

This Book Launch is part of Lange Nacht der Forschung
