WHAT IF WE FINALLY REALIZE WITH A VIEW TO THE PAST WHAT TIME HAS LONG BEEN READY FOR? Cleared rainforests, oceans full of plastic, bursting icebergs – it is us who are exploiting the earth. And it is only us who can finally change our minds and act differently. Before it is too late. Not only since today we are losing our livelihood on this planet, although everyone can make his contribution. Immediately. So that we have a future at all. More than 20 international artists share visions of this future in the first edition of the URBAN NATION BIENNALE.
