The Intelligence of Plants

16 Octobre 2021 - 30 January 2022
Frankfurter Kunstverein

With the exhibition, the Frankfurter Kunstverein wants to once again contribute to the debate about the Anthropocene: what new understanding of plant life have we humans gained, and what conclusions can we draw from this knowledge.

If plants were the first living beings on the planet, they have proven to have developed successful methods to sustain themselves over millions of years despite the five past occurrences of species extinction.

With novel observations and findings, the various scientific researchers provide a basis for philosophical and social considerations that put our historical form of life and economy up for discussion.

With the planned exhibition, we would like to present individual artists who, together with literary figures, demonstrate these new voices of a changed sensibility towards fellow plant life.
