Iceland is unique in its magnificent and unspoiled nature with the combination of geothermal and ice, clefts, huge mountains and several waterfalls, big wide areas and uninhabited wilderness, which is owned by no one.

You don’t know what you have until it’s gone, is a large multimedia exhibition, which reminds us of the areas in Iceland which have already been lost but with a special focus on the impact area by the Kárahnjúkar plant.
