another world is possible – with this exhibition, young artists and activists call for a climate-just, solidary future. This demand, however, requires a researching perspective at the climate (justice) issues of the present time: Global exploitation and especially lignite mining in the Rhenish lignite area Garzweiler are central topics of the exhibition. For 500 years, colonized people, especially in the global South, have been fighting against exploitative and capitalist violence. As part of this climate justice movement, the activist resistance in Lützerath – a village in North Rhine-Westphalia destroyed by lignite mining – is an example of how utopias can already be lived today: by people working collectively for the survival of the village and a caring community. Art reflects and creates social realities; or questions them. Therefore Lützerath is also an important part of the Ekosistem of documenta fifteen. This is an invitation to all people not only to enter the intersection between art and activism, but also to visit the real places of resistance to experience the power of the collective. Both art and activism create open spaces where social unfolding, renegotiation, and ultimately change become possible. These open spaces, in which real utopias are already being lived today, will be discussed, made visible and experienced in another world is possible. A World Where Many Worlds Fit! „Otro mundo es posible. Un mundo donde quepan muchos mundos.“ (Quoted from the Zapatista social revolutionary movement).
All interested people and friends are heartly invited to the vernissage in the Kurt-Schumacher-Str 26a in Kassel on 18.06.2022, starting at 5 pm.
