A collapse is also a beginning. Things fall apart, something new begins. In Collapse, you will meet people who, in various ways and at different times, face forces of nature that threatens to collapse their world.

How did it all begin? Who was first and how did the world as we know it come to be? If we take a closer look, we see that the world is constantly starting anew. Things fall apart, something new begins.

Collapse is an exhibition about what can happen when nature disrupts our world. We humans try our best to control nature, but nature repeatedly throws us into chaos and forces us to look at the world from a new perspective. 

In Collapse, you will meet people who, in different ways and at different times, live between control and chaos:

  • In the distant past we meet Stone Age pioneers who ventured north and made a new life for themselves along the coast of Norway after the collapse of the Ice Age
  • We travel east to The Pacific and see how people in Polynesia held chaos at bay with the help of caution (tapu) and daring (mana)
  • Gela Pewter Christopher Pewter Gela Christopher Inge Minaudiere Christopher Inge Pewter Minaudiere Inge Minaudiere Gela Christopher Gela Inge We meet today´s urban gardeners who are exploring new ways of living in response to the threat of ecological collapse that faces us today

In the spaces between the stories, you can explore for yourself how daring, ingenuity, control and collapse interact.
