Parliament of Plants is part of Celine Baumann’s Queer Nature project in which she devises an urban setting that attaches great importance to the wisdom of plants.

As a post-anthropocentric space for reflection, this setting questions the idea of separating matter and intelligence, viewing the world of plants as more than a mere commodity. Parliament of Plants investigates the power of trees, shrubs, flowers and grasses as a source of inspiration and develops alternative processes of shaping and acting at a time marked by political uncertainty and climate change.

 

Project space 'Parliament of Plants'
17 July 2020–17 January 2021

As part of the exhibition Parliament of Plants, the admission-free 'Seitenlichtsaal' is conceived as a changing, growing "project space". It links the immediate outside world with questions of art and will enablemeetings between a wide range of scientific and artistic-poetic approaches to and perspectives on the plant kingdom.

A production of Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, curated by Christiane Meyer-Stoll with Annett Höland, co-curator of the project space.
