Hannes Schick - "War Against Ourselves"

05 June 2007


The theme of the exhibition is the war of mankind against themselves and against the environment that sustains them: a collective suicide perpetrated in the form of exploitation, oppression, terrorism, war and individual violence.
Particulary this exhibition wants to highlight the war on children and nature, because a civilisation that looses the will to protect its future is destined to perish.
Hannes has crossed the planet following the crisis that have characterized our recent history and he has tried to draw a line able to bring under the light the indissoluble tie that links these crisis to the expansionism of the global market. What comes out is a sometimes upsetting portrait where the weak always pay the greatest price and where, if inclined to some questions, we could really  change a lot of things.
