Apple. An Introduction. (Over and over and once again) is an exhibition of paintings, objects and films revolving around the apple as an example of biodiversity loss. Drawing on the fruit’s rich traditions, the exhibition addresses both market dynamics and critical questions of nutrition, as well as the preservation of species, resilience and climate change. Initiated by the Berlin-based artist Antje Majewski and the Polish conceptual artist Paweł Freisler, this is a project that is artistic, research-based and cultural-historical as well as political. Tree-planting sessions, workshops and other programmes involving the participation of urban initiatives and educational institutions will extend the project into urban space.
