(Non)Depleted at Gr_und, Berlin 16.04.2021–30.05.2021

(Non)Depleted is a group exhibition that brings together contemporary design and art projects to unwrap the meaning of depletion in the current context. Through this choir of critical but upbeat voices, the exhibition explores unconventional roads to material and systems. That enables different tactics, methodologies and perspectives—translated into objects, installations, furniture and research-based practice.

The title “Depleted” refers to the prevailing challenges of resource depletion, extractive capitalism and the ongoing effects of climate breakdown. While the “Non” highlights the creative minds and practitioners, which address these issues and envision alternative directions. The constellation of sixteen projects and twenty-four individual voices observes and challenges policies that structure resource management and the ecological, emotional, and political implications.

As the contributions transverse different material narratives, they explore modes of visually posing questions and opening up space for a multitude of perspectives—reaching a moment of reflection than a conclusion. An in-between state of transition and not yet knowing—where a statement does not have to be an answer. Letting go of the innovation-driven society’s expectations to claim solutions before the question is fully asked or even understood.

Here we invite the audience to reflect with us on what we mean by “forward”–while keeping in mind the distance act of spectating.
