ON THE MEANING OF SHARING A DYNAMIC, CONNECTIVE RESSOURCE
Research Project, Publication, Group exhibition, Interdisciplinary Workshops 2019-2023
The SHARING WATER project initiated by Regina Hügli consists of a research on the treatment of water at four European locations, a traveling group exhibition and interdisciplinary dialogue workshops in Vienna.
The investigative work was implemented by Mathias Plüss (journalist) and Regina Hügli (photographer) at four water head regions along the European Watershed in Czech Republic, Switzerland and France. They focused on political, ecological and cultural topics connected to water and water treatment and the conflicts arising from the collision of interests. Their expeditions and insights were published in DAS WASSERBUCH October 2022 at Echtzeit, Basel.
A traveling group exhibition curated by Regina Hügli on the Continental watershed and European watercourses was shown in the same regions from 2021-2023. Artistic contributions by Stefan Fraunberger, Anne Glassner, Klara Hobza, Regina Hügli, Barbara Anna Husar, Leonhard Münnich, Elisabeth Schmirl and Nives Widauer.
What does fair and sustainable sharing of stare resources entail? From autumn 2022 to spring 2023 this question is at the center of a of a cycle of interdisciplinary events in Vienna organized by Regina Hügli and the One Body of Water Association, in cooperation with the Natural History Museum, the Volkskundemuseum and the University of Applied Arts.
