  • Exhibition

Water – whether too much or too little, clean or unsafe – is one of the most pressing human preoccupations. Already, 40% of the world’s population is affected by water scarcity and, with human-induced climate change, this is getting much worse. “Water Pressure: Designing for the Future” – an exhibition of the MK&G and Jane Withers Studio – looks at the water crisis from a global perspective, displaying ideas and proposals that illuminate the potential for shaping a radically different future. About 75 innovative works from the fields of design, architecture, art and science – based in many cases on natural principles – open up new routes to overcoming the current situation. Conceived as an odyssey in five parts, the exhibition presents inspiring solutions to global issues such as water scarcity, flooding, pollution and disrupted hydrological cycles. A closer look is taken at the port city of Hamburg and the current and future challenges it faces, from flooding to water shortages.
