Ice-cold, both a natural phenomenon and a state of mind, is the motif of this exhibition, which seeks to portray the social status quo more as an emotional-aesthetic status report than an analytical description, which is the task of science. The selected works of art produce fields of energy that sometimes overlap with their content. Many of these intersections are bleak landscapes and realms that are skeptical of the future.
