[RE] GENERATION showcases a new wave of diverse artists from around the world. This two-space exhibition will be showing in parallel at Knust Kunz Editions and Galerie Daniel Blau, Munich. Organized by Hans Kern, founder of the [Re]generator (www.regenerator.earth), this collaboration premieres not only inspiring art, but also a new idea for organizing community around creative problem-solving. The [Re]generator is a new project that plans to build a network of physical spaces (also individually named “[Re]generators”), that will facilitate and harness the creative power of artists to help fx the biggest challenges of our time: ecological degradation, climate change, plastic pollution, loss of community and political polarization.
Proceeds from the exhibition will go to support the creation of the frst physical [Re]generator, hopefully in Kamikatsu, Japan. Kamikatsu is known as Japan’s “zero waste town”. The hope is that such a space, will serve as a model to other towns around the world, to adopt similar approaches to local ecological and social challenges. The “creative citizen’s assembly” problem-solving model applies new insights from deliberative democratic practice emerging around the world. Through this creative space, it is hoped that new creative engagements, reciprocities and ecologies between humans and their environment can emerge. In this way, the [Re]generator could inspire a new circular ecology of regenerative art and artistic regeneration.
The organisers of [RE] GENERATION believe that social, political and ecological healing, must begin with the imagination. By bringing a diversity of dynamic creative perspectives into one space, we wish to inspire the public to join us on a journey of discovering alternative visions of the possibilities for life on our green Earth. The exhibition has been curated with the help of Valeria Diaz Granada.
From July 2nd, 2021, two of the artists in [RE] GENERATION, China Marks and Chris Bianchi, will also be exhibiting in a parallel two-person show, BONKERZ GARDEN, at KNUSTxKUNZ+ on Theresienstrasse 48.
