Hangar-7 is a place where artists and art aficionados can exchange ideas and inspire one another. The exhibition space is brought to life by this exchange, which stimulates a contrast between the different exhibition themes: technology in all its forms on the one side, and art on the other.
In the current exhibition entitled “Earth – the Full Picture”, a collection of pictures from 12 artists on the topic of global warming is being presented. The roots of this collection date back to 2005. In the years that followed, a series of unique exhibitions at Salzburg's Hangar-7 showed the work of young and promising artists from a different country or region each time. The Hangar-7 art project became an artistic voyage around the world. It began in Austria and stopped off in 18 countries, including China, Poland, South Africa, the Czech Republic and Mexico.
Meteorologists have been left baffled by the recent flurry of hurricanes. Record temperatures are being recorded year after year. People are influencing the redistribution of land more than rivers and wind. Species are dying out at a rate not seen since the extinction of the dinosaurs.
This is just a small list of the abnormalities that we are currently witnessing. As the causer of these problems, are we aware of the full picture being painted by our ‘minor’ and major environmental problems?
Are these conditions and events out of our control? Or are they caused by nature itself, as some people would like to believe?
From a greater distance, as though we are looking down on Earth from outer space, we can gain a better impression of the loss of wilderness, the massive scale of agriculture, the use of pesticides, the deforestation, the construction of industrial areas, the artificial reservoirs, and the many other problems that we are inflicting on our planet.
