The exhibition Eco-Visionaries is dedicated to the topic of ecological change and presents artistic responses to current challenges.

It investigates new media, technologies and techno-scientific methods in the arts and their significance for the perception and awareness of the “ecological.” Eco-Visionaries presents artistic responses to current challenges, whereby some of the new works were created for the context of the exhibition. The exhibition shows how new media and technologies are used, not only to draw attention to ecological problems, but also to develop visionary solutions.
