RESANITA
 

PLANTS & POLITICS

Political groups and movements claim plant symbols for themselves. RESANITA explore the underlying political impulse beneath this connotational tendency and its spreading by means of floral pictoral language in recent and current international contemporary history. In a first step, they present a selection of ideologically claimed flowers, shrubs and trees together with their roots. They therefore address their potential and transitoriness as well as the antipodes camouflage and original purpose, or neutral character and metaphorical reinterpretation. A series of 20 plant photographs and a plant book unveil their symbolic an political expressiveness and make them visible and readable. (Elisabeth Fiedler)
