Oliver Ressler (Solo show): "Gathering around the Wreckage", Podroom Gallery, Belgrade. 14.01.2020 > 13.02.2020

Images of protest play on the walls of the dark basement of the Cultural Centre of Belgrade, in one of Europe’s most polluted cities. Comprising Vienna-based artist Oliver Ressler’s five-channel video installation Everything’s coming together while everything’s falling apart, 2016–19, they amount to more than a reminder of the obvious perils of carbon dependency and climate change. Rather, they represent the struggle of multitudes, gasping for breath against the necropolitics of extraction.
