In Romanticism, the forest serves as a timeless refuge from the modern world. The group exhibition Walder assumes that the forest is no longer an antipode, but the dominant reality. Ingo Niermann and Erik Niedling’s video of the same title shows a lonely middle-aged man strolling through the Thuringian woods, imagining himself as the law, the power and the people. This work is complemented by paintings, drawings, photographs and artefacts, also by Fabian Reetz, Genesis P. Orridge, Kazuko Miyamoto, Kinga Kiełczyńska and Thomas Bayrle, in which the word for world is again forest.
