episode 34: ZERO WASTE exhibition at Museum der Bildenden Künste, Leipzig | EP34 Subtext & Discourse


The group exhibition Zero Waste showcases international positions in contemporary art that point out the urgency to save resources, consume less, and live more sustainably. In diverse installations, videos, sculptural works, and photographs the artists investigate the global consequences of plastic packaging, tire abrasion, toxic chemicals, and the overproduction of consumer goods. Zero Waste will be realised by the German Environment Agency in cooperation with the MdbK and curated by Hannah Beck-Mannagetta and Lena Fließbach.

The exhibition catalogue, published by the Museum of Fine Arts Leipzig (MdbK) and the German Environment Agency, contains essays by Hannah Beck-Mannagetta and Lena Fließbach, Sven Bergmann and Yusif Idies, Martin Ittershagen and Fotini Mavromati such as Minimal Mimi. The catalogue (130 pages, colour pictures) is available now from the museums pay desk at the price of 12 € and online from Do You Read Me. 100% of the proceeds from the catalogue will go to the tree-planting project by artist Andreas Greiner, with the aim of offsetting the CO2 footprint in the exhibition. The first field maple is planted in January, 2020 in Gohlis. A sponsorship of the "Aktion Baumstarke Stadt" of the city of Leipzig costs 250 € per tree.

Interviews for ZERO WASTE with Lena Fließbach & Hannah Beck-Mannagetta, Erik Sturm, Wolf von Kries, Jeanette Stoschek, and Bianca Kennedy & The Swan Collective recorded by Michael Dooney on 24. June 2020 at the Museum der bildenden Künste, Leipzig Germany.
