The Unknown Mine Zone

exploration of alternative sources

The program The Unknown Mine Zone examines the coming era of finite resources, developments for sustainable alternatives, underlying financial structures and agreements. The Unknown Mine Zone also looks at restoration of areas devastated by traditional extraction. The programs toured in different formations.

Two different exhibitions were realized at Transnatural and at Nieuw Dakota in Amsterdam. Furthermore, the program consisted of expeditions, tours, tastings with food designers, presentations and artist talks in collaboration with Oerol, Eye, the Tolhuistuin and Sexyland World.

The Unknown Mine Zone

17-10-2020 / 13-09-2021

How can natural, non-harmful resources help us with upcoming shortages? What are the most useful methods and materials for the future? Can mass-consumption continue to exist? How can we repair the damage?

The Unknown Mine Zone highlights several artworks and innovative designs that deal with the impending natural (resource) crisis in a sustainable way.
