Susanne Kriemann artist talk & Q&A

MNGRV: Artist Talk & Q&A Susanne Kriemann


Susanne Kriemann will talk about her new project MNGRV, which explores speculative and material interconnections between the mangroves in South and South-East Asia and plastic waste. She investigates how in times of climate change and environmental pollution the borders between nature and culture increasingly disappears.

MNGRV was made with a focus on sustainable production. After the talk, we therefore invite you to think along while we continue to think about the complex relation between art and the environment. What is the responsibility of the artist? When do ethics and aesthetics relate, and when might they clash? How do we create/design/curate in sustainable ways?
