Heaven Can Wait

Steinbrener/Dempf & Huber have long been dealing in their work with the precarious relationship between nature and civilization. It is no coincidence that they have appropriated the diorama, a display format traditionally associated with the natural sciences, as artistic medium for exploring this theme. The difference is that in their dioramas the careful staging is obvious: they lay bare the structure, the stage space is recognizable as such, and there are only a few vantage points from which the illusion works perfectly.

The themes, too, differ fundamentally from those found in nature exhibits; they do not pretend to capture an actual state of affairs but instead probe future scenarios. The question of whether the future will be more of a paradise or a dystopia is not only left open but is also a matter of perspective.
