WHAT IF WE FINALLY REALIZE WITH A VIEW TO THE PAST WHAT TIME HAS LONG BEEN READY FOR?
Cleared rainforests, oceans full of plastic, bursting icebergs – it is us who are exploiting the earth. And it is only us who can finally change our minds and act differently. Before it is too late. Not only since today we are losing our livelihood on this planet, although everyone can make his contribution. Immediately. So that we have a future at all. More than 20 international artists share visions of this future in the first edition of the URBAN NATION BIENNALE.
What if we learned from the past to focus on what is essential today?
What if we found a new perception of our cities, rethinking what they can be for us?
What if we finally started to explore the future by understanding today?
What if we understood that we are short-term visitors on this planet?
What if we drove communication out of the one-way-street back to dialogue?
What if we acted like humanity as one community?
What if we paid more attention to the values we share than to our differences in believe?
What if society were social but also competitive?
What if “What if?” becomes the big question?
And what if every given answer was driven by a new consciousness – aiming for sustainability?
