Exhibition about the relationship between humankind and water

Humans have an effect on water, and water has an effect on humans. Different artists make wide-ranging work about the many faces of water and the relationship between water and humans in this age. The exhibition is freely accessible


What effect does humankind have on the sea, on rivers, lakes, ground and rain water? And what effects does water have on humans? Water can form a threat, but it can also be a source of inspiration. In the imagination of artists and writers: water can be destructive, but also: purifying, the source of life, healing and protective.


This group exhibition explores, through photography and art installations, the relationship between humans and water: humans’ dependence on, as well as subordination to water. This source of life is, paradoxically, both destructive, as well as necessary and healing. A number of (inter)national multimedia artists will explore the influence of man-made climate change, pollution and depletion on our planet’s water. Human adaptability to these changes is essential.

This programme is part of the overarching programme Manifesto for the living in a time of extinction.

In relation to this manifesto, art will not only be made about the climate crisis, but we will also ask ourselves how we might, in an inclusive manner, take action.
