The exhibition '“… and diggings revealed unforeseen finds” – Reports from the Capitalocene' shows new and in Innsbruck produced works of the participants of the Fellowship Program for Art and Theory at Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen 2018-19. In their respective projects, Angela Anderson, Michael Baers, Aikaterini Gegisian and Riccardo Giacconi have dealt with forgotten as well as under-examined social and political narratives that could prove relevant for the understanding of contemporary societal dynamics.
Riccardo Giacconi addresses in a multimedia installation the 'conservative utopia' of a habitat, realized in the 1970s under the name 'Milano 2' by the investor Silvio Berlusconi as a capitalistically chummed up, proto-populist residential architecture between pseudo-traditionalism and new media.
