The history of Pangaea is the tale of a mega-continent that existed about 200-250 million years ago. The fragmented pieces of what was once Pangaea still bear the traces of being united. By making use of this geological metaphor, the Pangea United exhibition invites viewers to imagine our earthly community as one home. Artists taking part in the exhibition ask how can prototypes created within the art world teach us responsibility for the often-unnoticed suffering inflicted on other bodies? What can we learn from people who live in communities under threat of extinction, many of whom belong to so-called indigenous and folk cultures? What would be the value of goods, money and labour in a future devoid of all prospect of economic growth? The artworks presented in this exhibition form a kind of essay, a meditation on the matter of human attentiveness and the interdependence of life in all its forms. The exhibition is prepared in cooperation with Edith-Ruß-Haus für Medienkunst in Oldenburg.
