How old is humanity and how old is the planet that sustains it? The comparison to the age of stones radically relativizes human time measurement. The exhibition is dedicated to the material that in many respects forms the basis of our existence. On the occasion of its 30-year existence, the Kunsthaus Dresden presents a contemporary art show on the theme of stones.

The exhibition is a provocative as well as pensive response to the anniversaries being celebrated – 2021 also marks 160 years of German-Japanese friendship. These occasions are met with artistic as well as ethical and spiritual questions: What do we actually know about time? How must we change our lives – and our cultural perspective – to save our plant and our existence?

The artworks enable a view from very different positions on our globe to stones, which are regarded here not only as a resource, rough, uneventful, powerless, but also as a medium of geological and planetary knowledge. Listening to the Stones is also imbued with the hope for a symbolic restart by listening to stones as advisers and companions enabling us to relearn and rethink perspectives on the past and future.
