Åsa Sonjasdotter’s film Cultivating Abundance will be shown on loop at the “Av Jord” exhibition, presented by Telemark Kunstmuseum between September 21st and January 5th. The film reflects upon the invention of the breeding of monoculture crops in Sweden and the ideas of genetic ‘purity’ and ‘originality’. The exhibition is centered around different ways to thematise soil, food production, sustainability and growth – which are the very core of Rjukan and Notodden’s World Heritage history.

“Av Jord”, literally: “Of Soil”, takes a critical look at our own industrial history. The invention of mineral fertilisers and the production of fertilisers on an industrial scale responded to a crisis in agriculture at the beginning of the 20th century.
