Summer semester 2017

  • Schloss Tonndorf

The exhibition is a Bachelor thesis and shows a photo documentary of four different lifestyle projects that are based on Permaculture principles. Permaculture is a conscious creation of paradise. A life space created nature based, which can support the needs of humanity in a way that it is sustainable and with a low workload. Destruction of Nature nowadays is dramatic and has reached an alarming point. At the same time more and more people realize that there will be no livable future if we can not change the way we do things and think. Humanity needs sufficient and sustainable systems, not only for food supplies, but in all other parts too. The permaculture movement is trying to build and develop such systems.

There are pictures from Spain, France, Germany and India that are trying to point out the variety of alternative lifestyles and environmental friendly, nature based strategies. The Documentary is partly taken on Schloss Tonndorf and will be exhibited here.
