Emergency Call

NEW SCREENING: February 12 – March 7, 2021: Klimakipppunkte
Due to Corona, the exhibition KLIMAKIPPPUNKTE originally planned for 2020 has now opened in a modified form: in the showroom behind the windows of the Gallery Verein Berliner Künstler, at the Schöneberger Ufer in Berlin, from 12.2. to 7.3.2021.
The video “Emergency Call” is shown in the storefront of the gallery.

About the video:
While the summer in Berlin in 2018 was the hottest and driest in the whole history, the month of July 2017 had brought us only heavy rain. The Landwehrkanal emerged from the banks, basements overflowed. Extreme climatological events, which take place all over the world, should be a warning sign to large industry and governments. My hope is that humanity will respond to Earth’s emergency call and not let the phone rust in the water.
