Evolving landscapes, biosphere reserves, goods and services



Palazzo Zorzi

Venice, Italy


From 15 May to 12 June 2009

An exhibition on 'Land use planning traditions, goods and services in biosphere reserves' is taking place at Palazzo Zorzi, Venice (Italy) from 15 May to 12 June 2009. This installation by Karl-Heinz Gaudry of photographs taken by 23 professionals, including the Mexican National Commission for Protected Areas (CONANP), covers seven countries: Austria, Bolivia, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Romania and Serbia.

The team of artists uses images to portray different landscapes.  Whether this is conveyed by photos, paintings, graffiti (or street art), posters or poetry, the aim is to stress, through the lens of biosphere reserves, the diversity and complexity of relations between goods and services as the basis for human well-being.

Karl-Heinz Gaudry presently works for the Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg - Institute for Landscape Management (Germany) in the field of Spatial /Territorial Planning and Environmental Governance. In 2007-2008, he was a consultant at the UNESCO Office in Venice for territorial dynamics and governance in South Eastern Europe within UNESCO's Man and the Biosphere Programme (MAB).
