Lithium is an exhibition investigating the element that is a major source of energy for society – and ourselves. Conceived as a spa resort (revitalising lithium spas were all the rage in the 19th century), it highlights the benevolent and destructive elements of the eternal human search for energy. Researchers, designers and artists offer their perspectives on an urgent question: how often can we recharge our batteries without addressing the causes of depletion, in both ourselves and the planet? 

Taking his fascination for culture and technology as his starting point, Florian works as a designer with a diversity of media, from written text to video essays and social media platforms. Through his work, he tries to dive deeply into current topics. 

“If I share my knowledge and ignorance with others, and they do the same with me, it may lead us all to gain new insights, or raise new questions.”
