It’s an exhibition from the cadre of Renate Graf, a committed activist who sets out from this sacred but draws attention to global warming, in which she confronts people with climate struggle and environmental change, drawing attention to this issue with conscience-evoking depth. The exhibition completes a major theme of environmental pollution and global warming, with numerous large-format photographs as well as projection screenings where the melting of glaciers can be monitored.

Graf stated that “ I was 25 years old when my great three and a half months adventure started in 1993  from China, going through Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, India and all the way back to Anatolia. I felt like the explorers of the 19th century.
