The Oil Show
Posted on : November 3, 2011 Author : HMKV


In The Oil Show, on display from 12 November 2011 to 19 February 2012 on the 3rd floor of Dortmunder U, the Hartware MedienKunstVerein has gathered 15 contemporary artists whose work addresses the geopolitical, social and ecological consequences of our dependence on crude oil. Their attention focuses on regions such as the Niger Delta, whose natural resources have been ruthlessly exploited for several decades – a fact which is hardly ever discussed publicly in the developed countries. Straddling art and scientific research, the interdisciplinary approach that characterises their work aims to raise the public’s awareness of the increasingly complexity of global economic interests.
