Greenwashing

Exhibition and conversations

6.06.2013 – 15.07.2013

Two Man and Oil Tanks, C T.A. Greenwashing

Two Man and Oil Tanks, C T.A.

Greenwashing looks critically at companies who advertise a ‘green’ attitude despite the fact that their core function is unsustainable. Green on the outside, black on the inside. Is this fraud? Do consumers and politicians believe the mirage? How do greenwashers function? The exhibition addresses these questions through installation, photography, painting, video and computer games. Parallel to the exhibition a series of conversations with the participating artists will take place along the themes: ‘A criticism of sustainability reports from firms’ and ‘What can the customer do’?
