What images do we associate with our projections of the future?
The exhibition playing future is showing works that engage with this question. Beyond concrete prognosis and scope for action, artists reflect on society’s accepted notions of tomorrow in regard to feasible urban spaces, forms of mobility tomorrow, or ideas of communications networks totally reliant on technology, to name just a few examples. The opulent imagery of science fiction is just as ubiquitous as minimalism or reduction. The elementary problems of time and place hold sway over these reflections: after all, time is the key unit of measurement that interlinks the future, present, and past.
The exhibition celebrated the 350th anniversary of the founding of the Christian-Albrechts-Universität in Kiel.
