Art Safiental: Learning from the Earth
2 July until 23 October 2022, Safiental, Graubünden
International Outdoor Biennale on the latest trends in land and environmental art with changing themes. 15 national and international submissions with some connection to the landscape are on display as temporary works, most of them exhibited outdoors, which can be visited free of charge.
This year’s exhibition houses 15 art projects in a time of planetary crisis. Be it the economic crisis, the pandemic, war or the climate crisis, one thing is clear: humanity and our way of life on planet Earth is under threat.
The works and projects showcased in Safiental offer commentaries and suggestions; they ask us to think critically about the present, and to come up with alternatives to current developments and upheavals. They examine what our relationship with the Earth actually is, and what we can learn from it.
