Six international solo artists explore the theme rewilding in the widest sense of the concept and the complexities it entails. From the rewilding of nature to climate issues and diversity to the rewilding of other spheres e.g. bodies, society, social structures or art in itself.
This year’s headliners each propose their individual take on the implications of rewilding with the use of AI technology, ‘rewilded’ street photography, portrait photography with a green twist, critical climate narratives and images where stories documenting identity and belonging sprout in new healing ways.
The concept rewilding refers to a process of letting nature regulate itself without human interference. Instead of ‘caring’ for nature in a way that serves human purposes or profits, rewilding seeks to restore, repair, cure or even heal nature in a sustainable way that serves nature in itself and aids our gasping climate and biodiversity. The concept has flourished in recent years and proposes solutions but also contests existing (man-made) structures and power relations.
The exhibiting artists are Magnum photographer, Nanna Heitmann, Craig Ames, Kristina Knipe, Daniel Hinks, Hilla Kurki and Erik Berglin.
