Open Call: The water was pure and clear
9.11. – 14.12.18 Exhibition, Talks, Lecture

Drinking water is advertised as pure and clear. In drinking water, however, hormonally active trace substances from medicine are included. The groundwater is increasingly contaminated with fertilizer by nitrate. The Berlin Spree turns brown from the iron oxide of the former lignite mines. In public waters, multidrug-resistant bacteria from sewage treatment plants can be found. The water was pure and clear before industrialization. The art exhibition critically examines our approach to water from a sustainable perspective.
