Man has always shaped nature into a landscape. Whether through industrial use or building development - the landscape changes constantly over the course of the centuries and constantly takes on a new character. In northern Germany, the cultural landscape is primarily shaped by agriculture and is closely linked to cultural history.
Artists have been exploring the theme of landscape for centuries. Their depictions often become a reflection of human feelings, but also a projection surface for longings and visions. History is etched into it, disappears only to be rediscovered later. It absorbs times long past, countless stories and the fates of people and thus becomes the memory of mankind.
Today, the landscape is under severe stress from climate change to socio-economic crises and is being tested for its resilience. The resilience of the landscape is currently not only an important topic in science, but also in art. Many contemporary artists are exploring the relationship between people and landscape and the landscape's capacity for memory. Their stories are retold by means of artistic interventions, alienations and constructions.
International artists have been invited to take part in the exhibition in order to bring this current topic closer to a wide audience and to open up new perspectives on the observation and perception of the landscape. In some cases, site-specific installations will be created. The connection between the past, present and future as well as the relationship to the location and architecture will also be of particular importance in the artists' contributions and will be conveyed to visitors. The history of the Plüschow cultural landscape is integrated into a research project at the University of Greifswald, which is scientifically investigating the former Plüschow estate as a particularly valuable Mecklenburg estate in the context of the Baltic region. Surprising results are already available. The exhibition project is to be documented in a publication in which the artists' contributions will be presented, supplemented by art-scientific and cultural-historical texts on the subject of the resilience of cultural landscapes, among other things.
