Markus Kirchhofer and Marc Lee on India Tour

Within the 21st century, more than ten billion people will inhabit the earth. Since a couple of years, for the first time in history, more people live in urban than in rural areas. People need more space, animals habitats are being threatened, several species are becoming extinct. How do we deal with this constellation?

As an answer, media art, lyrics, facts about population development and animal extinction are brought together in a unique interdisciplinary project: MORE AND LESS – flying through a three-dimensional book. Markus Kirchhofer and Marc Lee will be on a research trip to India from 17 Jan to 2 Feb 2020 to add dimensions of India to their collaborative work.
