The Singing of Vanishing Species

Monokultur, C Susanne Gabler

Exhibition by Alfred Banze, Sandra Becker, Lioba von den DrieschStefan Groß, Sylvia Anais Krüger, Magenta, Benna Gaean Maris, Sybille Neumeyer.

Through intensive agriculture, insecticides, pesticides and monoculture, animal and plant species die out. Bird species disappear, bees die as pollinators, wild plants become less, insects die out, biodiversity decreases. Fewer fruits, vegetables and cereals are cultivated. This type of agriculture is not sustainable. The singing of vanishing species can not be heard. Species die silently.

As part of the exhibition, there will be the following events:
