The newest LandRush chapter Dry West was shown as a spatial six-channel video installation at Museum der Arbeit in Hamburg. In addition, we expanded this central exhibition with the new Moonscape series and the interactive LandRush iPad app to place Dry West into the global context of the larger project.
The group exhibition featured the work of the three winners of the Greenpeace Photo Award. Manuel Bauer documented a whole Himalayan village that had to be moved due to climate change. Dimitrij Leltschuk reported the struggle of the Komi people of Northern Russia, whose traditional reindeer breeding is threatened by pollution from oil extraction. Though thousands of miles apart, Dry West and the two other projects were drawn together by the overarching themes of climate change, environmental pollution, and water scarcity.
