We are living in a time in which the human impact on our planet is so terrifyingly profound that it shall leave its traces for millennia to come. Excessive and expanding modes of extraction, production, and disposal are necessary to support the perpetual economic growth inherent to the modern, and particularly Western, project. Our privileges and rights are possible only through the exploitation of the environment and land outside European borders.
The exhibition focuses on the worldwide toxic waste trade and the environmental injustice and slow, unspectacular violence that characterise it.
