What is landscape today? We continue to imagine the aesthetic ideal as a variety of natural, agricultural and residential areas. By contrast, modern landscapes are often "non-places." Traces appear there—traces of industrial intervention, changing borderlines, flight, war or uncontrolled development and mining.

With works by: Marianna Christofides, Luc Delahaye, Chloe Dewe Mathews, Lukas Einsele, Anca Benera und Arnold Estefán, Cyprien Gaillard, Anna Heinlein and Göran Gnaudschun, Markus Karstieß, Thomas Kellner, Jan Kempenaers, Anselm Kiefer, Aglaia Konrad, Susanne Kriemann, Armin Linke, Richard Mosse, Andreas Mühe, Multiplicity, Paul Nash, Alexandra Navratil, Milica Tomić, Unknown Fields Division, Danny Veys, Paul Virilio and Kristof Vrancken

Curated by the museum's director Dr. Eva Schmidt and Prof. Dr. Kai Vöckler, College of Design (HfG) Offenbach.
