___ Ever since the industrial revolution mankind has caused severe damage to the environment and ecosystems. The Soil Movement
exhibition investigates new ways of revitalizing these damaged ecosystems focusing on soil in the first chapter. The aim in the first place is to make it habitable again. At the same time these systems activate new methods to harvest food or to mine raw materials for example. Second step is to see if these projects represent a new world where man, nature and the economy can expand in a circular loop, without destructive consequences.
The Soil Movement exhibition will be organized in Transnatural Workspace Amsterdam and it travels to the NRW forum in Düsseldorf.
