Learning From Tropical Islands - Flamingo in Aspik

Pauline Curnier Jardin, Josefin Arnell; Mudde n' Muddle explore environmental disaster. A teaser. 2018. Video.

"Tropical Islands" — a resort built inside a massive hangar in the former GDR in Brandenburg — and other spaces of domesticated nature are the basis of the exhibition.

Presented by the class "Kunst im zeitgenössischen Kontext“ (KizK) at the Kunsthochschule Kassel led by Guest-Professor Pauline Curnier Jardin, the works are based on an expedition taken to the resort and grew out of a direct engagement with the topics of the replication of colonial structures and various ethical issues, including ecological wastefulness, the eroticization of the exotic, and the tropical as colonial euphemism.

Artists include: Rebecca Adam, Arhun Aksakal, Johannes Apelt, Josefin Arnell, Pauline Curnier Jardin, Sebastian Ebbing, Darius Grimm, Alice Hagenbruch, Hase & Zinser, Chris Lachmund, Marlon Middeke, Kerstin Rupprecht, Julia Stolba.
