The entire ecosphere – the oceans, the air, our food, the soil, even the Antarctic – contains residues, particles and chemicals derived from our consumer culture. The extraction of raw materials leaves behind destroyed landscapes and toxic spoil. Waste is everywhere. The group show at Museum Tinguely brings together art that deals with this issue, both works by contemporary artists with their global, geopolitical and ecological perspective and works from the second half of the twentieth century that reflect the move towards a throwaway society and environmental destruction that emerged from the 1960s.
