Warning Signs from Project Pressure
Open Air Exhibit, along Aabach.
The pictures from the international group of photographers Project Pressure deal with climate change.
Ca. 30 pictures as an open-air exhibition along the Aabach invite you to think about global warming, the ever-increasing footprint of humans and, in particular, its effects on the glaciers. Since 2008, artists and scientists from the Project Pressure collective have been documenting climate change, especially the melting of glaciers. On the initiative of the Danish photographer Klaus Thymann, expeditions took place on all continents and thousands of pictures from internationally recognized photographers form a global glacier archive.
This project is a collaboration with the Festival Alt + 1000 and the MBAL Musée des beaux-arts Le Locle.
The issue of climate change is of fundamental significance to reflect on the pressures we and our planet face. For this reason, the festival will be the new stage of the "Warning Signs" photo exhibition. Lenzburg is the second Swiss stage in the context of a world tour of the exhibition, which was developed with curator Nathalie Herschdorfer.
Participating photographers: Corey Arnold, Michael Benson, Scott Conarroe, Peter Funch, Simon Norfolk, Christopher Parsons, Klaus Thymann.
