Museum Tinguely I Basel I Territories of Waste. On the Return of the Repressed
September 14, 2022 - January 8, 2023
The exhibition will show various engagements with waste as the repressed remains of our civilization. The artists whose works are exhibited here share the desire to visualize the global and ecological consequences of our consumption.
The The twenty-five artistic perspectives presented, including those of Julien Creuzet, Agnes Denes, and Hira Nabi, address those impacts of our production of goods and waste that are normally hidden from view. While some works turn on the waste generated in other countries or focus on the pollution of the environment, Romy Rüegger, Eric Hattan are among those to present new works that are of direct relevance to the Basel context. The exhibition’s starting point is the present, as exemplified by installations, videos, sculptures, photographs, and performances, while a selection of historical works proves that pollution and the environmental devastation caused by the extraction of raw materials was a concern of artists even in the 1960s. The artist Jean Tinguely also produced works that critique consumer society. It was these that prompted Museum Tinguely to embark on a show that would tackle what is left behind, i.e. waste, from today’s geopolitical perspective.
