exhibition at the A.K.T; 07.05. – 10.07.2022
In view of the growing threats of environmental and economic crises, the corona pandemic, and the current conflict in Ukraine, in recent years, more and more young people have been raising their voices in order to be heard. Today’s youth movements have surprised and confronted those in power with valid, intelligent content and targeted action. With globally organized and sometimes radical protests, they put truly existential issues on the agenda; calling on politicians to counteract threats to their future such as the mismanagement of resources and the resulting climate problems, social inequality, and the unjust rule of law. Unfortunately, the responses they receive are often inadequate, overbearing or dismissive. There are many indications of a major generational conflict on the road to the future.
The exhibition “young rebellion” deals with the content of global youth movements and reflects their desire for social change.
