The phenomenon of the year 2012 refers to eschatological beliefs predicting transformative events on December 21, 2012. By now not only spiritual seekers have the conviction that something has to change. Still, there are different interpretations of the meaning of that specific date. Beyond the lunatic fringe views regarding the end of the world, a more constructive reading of the phenomenon is found in new age circles claiming that 2012 might be the beginning of a higher consciousness in humanity, coming to the realization that, in fact, Western systems have not brought prosperity and fulfillment to everybody as once imagined.
Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at the Ursula Blickle Stiftung, September 9–October 14, 2012.
