The focus of this publication by RealismusStudio is on Lois Weinberger, a trailblazer and crosser of frontiers, who since the late 1980s has influenced the debates on art and nature. Since this time, his engagement with spaces of nature and civilisation has been dominated by spontaneous ruderal vegetation. His metaphor of the migration movements of our times, which calls into question the arbitrary drawing of borders and hierarchies, turns out to be a radical counter-concept to the capitalist industry of exploitation. In the curatorial experiment titled CONJUNCTIONS, Weinberger’s complex oeuvre will be elucidated from different angles and discursively expanded by the artistic positions of Heath Bunting, whose provocative interventions challenge existing power structures, and Ladislav Zajac, whose works engage with aspects of space, time and perception.
