Frauke Huber and Uwe H. Martin
Opening: 22.02.2023, 18 Uhr
Exhibition: 23.02. – 07.05.2023
In “LandRush,” Frauke Huber and Uwe H. Martin document the social and ecological consequences of global agriculture. Working with farmers, fishers, scientists, indigenous farmers, and activists, they explore worldwide themes such as seed, water and land rights, environmental justice, climate change, and the future of agriculture, highlighting global relationships and individual approaches alike. Frauke Huber and Uwe H. Martin use artistic, journalistic, and scientific strategies to make different lived realities tangible on an intellectual and emotional level. Their many years of research and documentation have resulted in publications and interactive apps, as well as the multi-channel spatial installations—works of remarkable atmosphere and content—that are presented in the MQ Freiraum.

MQ Salon
Karina Mendreczky and Katalin Kortmann Járay 
Opening: 22.02.2023, 6 pm
Exhibition: 23.02. – 07.05.2023
Karina Mendreczky and Katalin Kortmann Járay are two artists who have been collaborating on a regular basis for the past couple of years, creating remarkable and unusual works together. “Oasis” is a subtly composed, expansive installation featuring numerous different sculptures, photographs, printed textiles, drawings, and sound elements. Taken as a whole, the objects form a mystical, fairytale-like constellation, a sort of Cabinet of Curiosities, one that resounds with ideas and concepts of life and death, and which addresses individual and collective attachments to nature.
