The Destruction of Atlantis revolves around the Atlantis myth, interpreted from the perspective, that we are gradually fulfilling, what many thought to be a bizarre myth. Humanity‚Äôs advanced civilization is gradually sinking as our world becomes more evolved and developed.
There are many themes attached to the figment of Atlantis, as writers, philosophers and artists have looked at the myth in very different ways through the last 2500 years: the destruction of an advanced civilization, natural disasters, man made disasters, utopia, hubris and nationalism (the Nazis believed it might be the home of an ideal race, others believed Atlantis was home of the Hyperboreans a race of Nordic supermen).
The Destruction of Atlantis is one of three exhibitions that will open September 30th . The two others will be a large installation by Danish Artist collective AVPD and a solo presentation of Danish artist Anika Lori.
