The state of the world’s forests has become an alarming indicator of the imbalances that exist between the planet’s tree population and humanity’s production of carbon dioxide. Logging and the profit-oriented exploitation of woodlands are accelerating the ecological crisis, while climate change fuels deforestation. The publication Into the Woods, which accompanies the exhibition of the same name, focuses on the forest as a habitat, its ecological processes, and the threats it faces. Works by eighteen contemporary artists examine how humans influence the condition of forests and cause their destruction, while at the same time exploring the collective and symbiotic nature of the forest ecosystem.

With works by Rodrigo Arteaga, Anca Benera & Arnold Estefán, Eline Benjaminsen, Alma Heikkilä, Monica Ursina Jäger, Markus Jeschaunig, Isa Klee, Susanne Kriemann, Jeewi Lee, Antje Majewski, Richard Mosse, Katie Paterson, Oliver Ressler, Abel Rodríguez, Diana Scherer, Rasa Šmite & Raitis Šmits.

The publication appears in conjunction with the Klima Biennale Wien 2024, 5 April – 14 July 2024
