Until this day, historical landscape painting determines our conception of the landscape, be it in literature, geography, landscape planning, or the more recent environmental sciences. How do artists engage with post-mining landscapes today? The two-day symposium taking place in Welzow—with a joint tour of the active mine—and at Kunsthaus Dresden is dedicated to the relationship between art, (post-)industrial landscape, resources, and democracy.
