About Walden:

It is the time to bring nature back in our everyday life; not the romanticised, sanitised, domesticated version, but the gritty, wild stuff.  The current narrative around the environmental crisis offers conflicting and confusing information, it has been wrongly politicised, and often induces guilt without offering solutions. This makes accepting that our lifestyles need to be dramatically transformed, a painful process: we procrastinate, waiting for a miracle cure. In order to find the solution, perhaps, we need first to stop seeing our environment for our use, to be tamed into a garden. We need to embrace the undomesticated, feral side of nature and allow pockets of wilderness to take over, in order to live with the simplicity of the philosopher.

About the location:

The Walden exhibition will be presented in the incredible spaces of the Schloss Hollenegg castle. Its long history is visible in its architecture, as successive owners have added to the original medieval construction over the centuries.
