„There’s only one planet earth, which we share” – Chinese photographer Lu Guang (*1961) came to this conclusion through his work. Lu Guang engages with the socio-economic and ecological issues of industrial China. The country, which has no oil reserves of its own, produces and consumes more coal than any other nation on earth. “Black Gold and China. Photographs by Lu Guang“ is Lu Guang’s first solo exhibition in Germany. It provides an insight into the work of one of the most important Chinese photographers.


Lu Guang’s photographs reflect the consequences of unrestrained coal mining and highlights the accompanying environmental destruction, the extent of which is causing international concern. His work strikingly showcases air pollution in Hebei Province as one of the collateral damages upon which China’s rise to international economic power is build.


Yet nature is not the only thing sacrificed in order to win this economic race: Lu Guang’s powerful pictures also capture the social realities of those living within these industrial landscapes, often in poverty. The exhibition focuses on the hard physical labour, the dangers and the poor living conditions affecting the miners. Additionally, it shows how humankind influences the environment, changing and often even destroying it.


The exhibition follows the chronology of Lu Guang’s travels through his home country, from Inner Mongolia’s “sea of coal” to the “cities of steal” at the eastern coast of Hebei province. The photographer’s numerous journeys started in 1995. At first, he captured his experiences on black-and-white film, nine years later, he started to use colour, and ever since 2005, he takes all his pictures digitally. The 22-year-long project was finished in 2017 and documents Chinas extraordinary economic development. Nowadays, China produces and consumes half the world’s coal.


With his work, Lu Guang makes a valuable contribution to the documentation of the environmental destruction following the exploitation of geological resources in a country that has developed into a quickly growing economic superpower from the beginning of the 21st century onwards and has become one of the main trading partner to many nations – including Germany.

The exhibition uses the case of the Chinese coal industry as an example for phenomena that can be found in countless coal mining areas around the world and throughout time.


Lu Guang has won several renowned international photography awards. This exhibition at the Deutsches Bergbau-Museum Bochum shows over 100 photographs, both in colour as well as in black-and-white, and is accompanied by a comprehensive educational programme.


The Deutscher Kunstverlag published a 160-page-long, generously illustrated catalogue. It includes texts by Lu Guang, Robert Pledge, Hu Donglin and Sandra Badelt.


Curators: Robert Pledge (Contact Press Images New York/Paris) and Sandra Badelt (Head of the department Exhibitions & Education).

For more than 30 years, the pedagogy on climate has been to explain the greenhouse effect, why we disturb the climate and how to act to limit the damage. This pedagogy has raised awareness of the urgency of climate change, but has not been able to change the course of our greenhouse gas emissions.


That’s why The Climate Show proposes another, innovative, original approach: to tackle this subject during an interactive show by reviewing some of the obstacles that we are unable to overcome, individually and collectively.


This show was designed and produced in collaboration with Climate Voices & Cap Sciences Bordeaux Nouvelle-Aquitaine.


The Climate Show consists of a stage with 3 large screens and bleachers to accommodate 120 people per 45-minute session, equipped with voting remotes.


Invited on stage by GaIA, the planetary conscience, the young Camille, starts a confronting dialogue with her friends about how to solve the climate issue on an individual and collective level.



TOGETHER TROUGH THE WOODS


Did you already know?

Trees have existed on earth for more than 390 million years – humans have only been around for 200,000 years. What’s more, a 20-metre-high tree supplies 5-10 people with oxygen every day – and incidentally, 400 litres of water are evaporated through its leaves. 


Exciting, isn’t it?

Even more exciting is that all these facts are presented using wooden marble runs and your visitors can playfully discover 6 essential reasons why we need and love trees.


With this exhibition, you as the organiser are taking a stand:

We Live in an Ocean of Air is a multi-sensory immersive installation that illuminates the invisible—but fundamental—connection that ties animals and plants, the human and natural worlds, into a wondrous rhythm that underpins life on Earth.  Standing in the liminal space between art, science and technology, it blurs the boundaries of installation, live performance and virtual reality, enchanting the everyday world by revealing the natural forces that exist around us. It offers an alternative platform to address the challenges facing our planet in the twenty-first century and helps us to reflect on our dependence and responsibility to the organisms with which we share it.  From the food we eat, the water we drink, or the air we breathe, humanity’s dependence on the natural world is absolute. The protection and regeneration of ecosystems are fundamental to our collective future. Marshmallow Laser Feast confronts these issues head-on through a magical and moving experience—and invites you to join them on it. Your experience takes place in Sequoia National Park, home to the Giant Sequoia trees. Share a breath with the forest and witness the unseen connection between plant and human. Lasting 15 minutes and accommodating two groups of 5 people simultaneously, visitors will use a unique combination of technologies: from untethered virtual reality, heart rate monitors, and breath sensors to body tracking. You will be completely immersed in a world beyond human perception.

Step back in time 290 million years when bizarre-looking animals dominated life on land and sea, and find out about the greatest extinction the world has ever seen in Permian Monsters: Life before the Dinosaurs. This unique traveling exhibition brings the past back to life with fossilized skeletons and full size life models of the animals that ruled the world millions of years before the age of dinosaurs, in a time known as the Permian.


The Permian period ended with the largest extinction Earth ever experienced, which wiped out 90% of all species on the planet. The cause of the end-Permian extinction had baffled scientists for the past 20 years but a recent discovery shed new light on the cause of this catastrophe: global warming. Find out how this familiar phenomenon, started by a huge volcanic eruption, set off a chain of events that led to the greatest extinction on Earth.

The exhibition blends art and science with a collection of new artwork which offers a glimpse back in time through the eyes of award winning paleo-artist Julius Csotonyi. View fossilised skeletons and reconstructed models of these amazing but bizarre creatures that dominated land and sea; and dig and identify fossils in the interactive dig pits throughout the exhibition.


This traveling exhibition showcases an amazing collection of fossils and models from this relatively unknown time period, from giant insects, bizarre looking sharks to strange reptiles with mammal-like characteristics. Meet the top predator of the time, the giant sabertoothed gorgonopsid Inostrancevia and find out what nearly killed them all to make way for Earth’s next rulers, the Dinosaurs.

Ours is a world in flux. Extreme weather events are propelling governments, cities, developers, designers and others to question our ability to confront and survive the repercussions of climate change, natural disasters and other shocks to our communities.


In order to address these challenges, we will need both emergency shelter and longer-term housing solutions for large populations. We will need to design human habitats, from houses to cities, to be flexible and adaptive, able to survive whatever Mother Nature and life throws our way.


Art Works for Change has invited visionary architects and artists to consider artistically-interpretative solutions and prototypes for survival shelter. In Survival Architecture and the Art of Resilience, science, technology, architecture, and art converge in a quest for resilience: What does it take to survive and thrive amid a changing climate? How we can address the needs of the world’s most vulnerable citizens? Through a variety of innovative ideas — high-tech and low-tech, extravagant and affordable — the exhibition begins to address the challenges of excess heat, droughts, flooding, food insecurity, homelessness, mass violence, biological disaster, and earthquake.






The digital revolution and the development of biotechnologies place humanity at a turning point where ethical questions take centre stage. The exhibition’s Inventive and humorous museography combined with immersive and artistic staging are designed to question our own limits…and beyond!


I AM AN  EXCEPTIONAL  ANIMAL

A number of contemporary artistic installations pose the question of what is  specifically human. A major audiovisual display introduces us to the controversy: is Man an animal like other animals?


I AM A CHAMPION

The exhibition decodes the desire of Man to surpass his limits. An interactive training area gives visitors an opportunity to transform their appearance, before learning more about athletes who have pushed back their physical limits…but also their mental ones. 


I AM A CYBORG

Prosthetics, exoskeletons, implants, connected objects… A great variety of devices in the field of man-machine are illustrated in this part. A humorous film decodes the contradictory positions of “bio-conservatism” and “technoprogressivism”. 


I AM A MUTANT

In a scenic laboratory setting, visitors are invited to create the “perfect” baby through genetic manipulation of the embryo. A novel experiment which questions the use of biotechnologies and their ethical dimensions…


I AM IMMORTAL

A mix of objects from ethnographic collections, contemporary art, folk art and mysterious special effects, this part of the exhibition examines the quest for immortality throughout human history, and one of its recent variations: trans-humanism. 


WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE!

A dramatic setting takes visitors to a situation of collapse: a cinematographic apocalypse or the 6th crisis of biodiversity? But then, what can be our shared vision for the future? Audio and interactive devices accompany our reflection on this vast question
