The impending climate catastrophe, the far-reaching consequences of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the increasing threat to democracies worldwide are the great challenges facing a young generation.
The title of the exhibition is borrowed from the title song by the American band Garbage for the 1999 James Bond film of the same name and is therefore partly older than the exhibiting artists. From today's point of view, it stems from an almost naive understanding of the world and clearly marks the fault line of the generations with regard to issues such as climate and environmental protection, gender-specific hierarchies and stereotypical images of a world order divided into simple political systems. Freed from this context, the title exudes a positive mood in light of the awareness that "the world is never enough", but still the best place for a new beginning.
What potential does art have to negotiate social, ecological and socio-economic issues? How can art make a specific contribution to recognizing problems, addressing them, making them sensually and aesthetically perceptible? How to draw a future that faces the challenges of the time, that acts in a pioneering and forward-looking manner?
