The larger exhibition Dissident Gardens (HNI – Gallery 1) will include 4 different chapters, one of which will be Gardening Mars, developed under the curation of Klaas Kuitenbrouwer.
Working on the fine balance between actual colonisation efforts and speculation, Gardening Mars will present various instruments and attributes that are used (on Earth) to simulate and to imagine life on Mars, focusing on four different frameworks that can be identified as part of the current practice of terraforming.
CASKIA rethinks and questions through a designer lens, our 21st century material culture, its values and the ongoing challenges and perspectives of living on Mars.
