Welcome Night: Filmscreening EARTH

Wed, 10 July 2019, 9pm

A special screening evening. Everyone welcome!

Every year, our Director, Séamus Kealy, organises a special open event welcoming everyone to visit the Salzburger Kunstverein. This year, we are showing the new, award-winning film Earth by Nikolaus Geyrhalter.

The idea of the Anthropocene Age, which suggests that humankind has become a greater influence on the planet than nature, is what prompted Nikolaus Geyrhalter to take a closer look at the Earth’s crust and the internal and external harm that our drive for progress relentlessly causes. Several billion tons of earth are moved annually by humans―with shovels, excavators or dynamite. Nikolaus Geyrhalter observes people―in mines, quarries and at large construction sites―engaged in this constant struggle to possess the planet and to get hold of its raw materials.
