This exhibition brings together an outstanding selection of works that invite visitors to rethink the human position in the world.

A growing awareness of living in an environmentally fragile planet has led many artists to reconsider the role of art in responding to current challenges. Through film and video, drawing and sculpture, installation and sound art, the artists in this exhibition have been rethinking the relationship between humans and nature, the effects of changes to the earth's climate and the ways in which all species are caught together within complex causes and effects.

Participating artists include Allora & Calzadilla (USA/Cuba), Pia Arke (Greenland), Pierre Bismuth (France/Belgium), Marcus Coates (UK), Mary Beth Edelson (USA), Simone Forti (USA), Luca Frei (Switzerland/Sweden), Pierre Huyghe (France), Carsten Höller (Germany/Sweden), Joan Jonas (USA), Annika Larsson (Sweden), Louise Lawler (USA), Britta Marakatt-Labba (Sweden), Amalia Pica (Argentina), Ho Tzu Nyen (Singapore) and Paloma Varga Weisz (Germany).
