EXPLORING THE MEANING OF SHARING A RESSOURCE WE ALL DEPEND ON,
A RESSOURCE BEING DYNAMIC AND CONNECTING, CROSSING BORDERS.
Interdisciplinary Art Project, 2019-2021
SHARING WATER is an ongoing interdisciplinary project consisting of a research on the treatment of water at four European locations and artistic perspectives on the relation to water.
The investigative work is implemented by Mathias Plüss (journalist) and Regina Hügli (photographer) at four locations along the European Watershed in Czech Republic, Switzerland and France. We focus on political, ecological and cultural topics connected to water and water treatment and the conflicts arising from the collision of interests. The impact of climate change on the regions visited is another topic of concern.
The products of our investigative work are going to be published in 2021, a traveling exhibition with the artistic contributions of Stefan Fraunberger, Anne Glassner, Klara Hobza, Regina Hügli, Barbara Anna Husar, Elisabeth Schmirl and Nives Widauer is going to reconnect the visited regions in 2021/22/23.
