For the second OPEN SPACE, the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen will again transform an exhibition hall into an indoor public space. Under the title “Nothing but the Future,” the focus is now on the Anthropocene, a scientific term for the present age of the earth, in which humankind has become a force of nature.
In view of the climate crisis and its life threatening consequences, the excessive waste of resources, and growing social and economic inequality, the question must be asked: How can we think and shape a just and worthwhile future together? In a cooperative process with local and international partners, a transdisciplinary program is being developed that will make OPEN SPACE a place for negotiations on questions concerning the present and future of our planet.
Developed in collaboration with the architectural office of raumlaborberlin, OPEN SPACE is a place where people can meet without having to pay admission and where they can work, discuss, learn, play, read, or participate in a wide variety of events.
