From April 20th to June 9th, 2024, Part II of the exhibition series Caring in Times of Continuous Crisis will be presented at Kasseler Kunstverein. The exhibition series is dedicated to the importance of care in personal and societal crises.

While the first part of the series was focused on care and health, the second part explores the connections between care and ecology.

The invited artists, activists, and researchers address the connection between colonial structures and the climate crisis. They investigate how the exploitation of labor and raw materials, the production of food, and the accumulation of wealth are interconnected. They share knowledge about economic systems based on solidarity and regeneration. In doing so, they view ecosystems not as resources but as living organisms that require and provide care.

During the exhibition, there will be a wide range of public events to which you are cordially invited.
