Drinking water is advertised as pure and clear. In drinking water, however, small amounts of 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 water pollution as a global problem and how we treat water from a sustainable perspective.
