PREMIERE: The Plastic Archive // Rotterdam Presenta / Jan Rohwedder // 15/3/22 // FFT Düsseldorf
Plastic has rapidly spread and intertwined with existing matter. It has shaped and changed our everyday life, economy, aesthetics and social interaction. Now, individual layers of rock are beginning to encase the plastic, heralding the approaching end of the plastic era.
The end of plastic must be celebrated: The Plastic Archive gathers objects made of plastic, their stories, sounds and great performances in a digital archive. In addition, interviews with experts from plastic production and archaeology, art and business.
Rotterdam Presenta invites you to commemorate plastic, to follow its traces and to rummage through the archive together.
Supported by the Fonds Darstellende Künste, the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, the Cultural Office of the City of Düsseldorf and the Kunststiftung NRW.
