Freiburg is known throughout the world as a "Green City" with extensive awareness of ecological issues; a city that takes part in current discussions as well as starting up new ones. Artists, in particular, can bring new energy and ideas tot his area: by getting involved, infiltrating, polemicising, reinterpreting and offering alternatives. With the active involvement of the visitors, the interaction between man and the environment becomes a concrete experience. National and international artists will be taking part in this exhibition.
The exhibition presents the unique nature and culture of Bhutan, the “hidden kingdom in the Himalayas”. It grants insight into the amazingly diverse species of fauna and flora and their numerous habitats, national parks and natural reserves in a country which is characterised by height differences of between 100 m to 7,500 metres.
