BREATHE – Investigations into our Atmospherically Entangled Future

Exhibition 19.7. – 23.7.2021

Klaus K. Loenhart Technische Universität Graz, terrain: integral designs
Silvia Benedito Harvard University
Nicola Borgmann Architekturgalerie München 

Exhibition 19.7.– 23.7.2021

Exhibition with photographs by Iwan Baan and Daniele Madia from the two books presented, BREATHE - Explorations into our Atmospherically Entangled Future, Klaus K. Loenhart and Atmospheric Anatomies: On Design, Weather, and Sensation, Silvia Benedito.

Architekturgalerie München in the KUNSTAREAL Türkenstraße 30 80333 München 
Entrance via L. Werner bookstore Mon-Sat 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

Our being-in-the-air shows that all aliveness cannot be separated for a moment from this most intimate and at the same time planetary form of atmospheric interaction and is by no means only contextual but constitutive for all life. This evening will explore breathing and the planetary atmosphere as highly vital leitmotifs for the design of an inclusive future in a new climate regime. In that regard, the atmospheric linkages of future societal activities will be traced. With this awareness of entanglement, the deeply performative characteristics of the air, atmosphere and climate are foregrounded and can be discovered as central agents in the conception and design of our planetary existence. Univ.Prof. Klaus K. Loenhart and Univ.Prof. Silvia Benedito introduce this thematic field in the context of the new publications of their books, in order to discuss with you the creative and societal opportunities in a time of escalating climatic and atmospheric challenges.

We are proud to announce and present the latest book release:

BREATHE – Investigations Into Our Atmospherically Entangled Future explores breathing and the planetary atmosphere as intensely lively leitmotifs for the design of an inclusive future in a new climate regime, uncovering intertwinements of societal activities with the air and the atmosphere. With this awareness of entanglement, the deeply performative characteristics of the air, atmosphere and climate are foregrounded and cam be discovered as central agents in the conception and design o four planetary existence. This carefully edited collection brings together renowned authors from various disciplines, and their ideas, observations, and examples inspire us to rethink our forms of social action and design.
