Entitled "Rare Earths · Tierras Raras," this exhibition at GlogauAIR, in collaboration with Chema Alvargonzalez's Artistic Memory and with Spanish Embassy in Germany; delves into the multifaceted realms of rare earth elements, spotlighting their cultural, political, and environmental significance within the European context.
In an era marked by globalization and technological advancements, the demand for these elements has reached unprecedented levels. However, the process of extracting them gives rise to critical environmental and societal issues.
Curated by Justin Ross, the exhibition brings together the captivating works of four contemporary artists: Rosell Meseguer, Arturo Comas, Andreas Greiner, and Fadi Al-Hamwi. Each artist offers a unique perspective on rare earths, exploring their multifarious aspects and the complex interplay between humanity and natural resources.
