In times of an ecological and social tipping point, the younger generation doesn’t dream, they demand change. Facing an exhausted planet as well as poverty, migration and inhuman behavior, material values need to fade in favour of idealistic objectives.
As part of Vorspiel 2020 transmediale, the exhibition MOTHER creates a space for critical reflection underlining the need for immediate reaction to the global ecological crisis and social misconduct. Students from the department of Design for the Economy and Advertising of the UdK Berlin have taken the responsibility of developing persuasive concepts of communication to this effect. Their positions are expressed in transmedia projects, from creative multimedia campaigns to speculative design approaches.
Not only aiming to provoke thought, but also to inspire all visitors to make a change of their own, MOTHER doesn‘t restrict itself to only asking questions; it provides opportunities to act.
