The exhibition Beating around the bush #6: Scenes from the Anthropocene presents artworks that can be associated with certain aspects of the Anthropocene. They provide starting points for critical reflection on the unprecedented possibilities that humans have created for themselves, as expressed in achievements in the areas of science, art and welfare, which we count as our civilisation. On the other hand, there is a focus on the drawbacks of the Anthropocene, such as the escalating faith in manipulability or the downside to our ever-increasing footprint.
