Parrots & propaganda

Protection of the environment, political propaganda and the exploitation of natural resources and workforce are the essential topics of a new exhibition.

“Naturgeschichten. Spuren des Politischen” (Natural Histories. Traces of the Political) is now on display at the Museum of Modern Art (MUMOK) in Vienna, one of Austria’s most important institutions for contemporary art.

The exhibit features photographs, drawings paintings, multimedia installations and even caged live parrots. How have political movements taken advantage of the beauty of nature? Is there a connection between pollution of the environment and an increasing lack of respect and tolerance in our society? Visitors of the exhibition – which stretches over three floors – are confronted with these and various other controversial questions concerning society and nature.
