Summary:How is nature presented in contemporary art? And how are humans interpreted as relating to other species?0The 'Coexistence' exhibition looks at the relationship between humans and nature. Environmental issues, nature, and human coexistence with other organisms are topics of long-standing interest in art, but they have recently come into sharper focus amid the eco-crisis of the 2000s.0The exhibition is part of Kiasma?s theme year centering on ideas about good life. It invites us to consider exactly whose ?good life? we mean and calls into question the place habitually awarded to the human as above nature and other animals and as their sovereign. 00Exhibition: KIASMA, Helsinki, Finland (26.04.2019 - 01.03.2020).
