Potential Worlds 2: Eco-Fictions inquires into the potential worlds that might emerge from the ruins of humanity’s making: What can we do with the detritus of contemporary life and the traces of destruction? Given the precarious situation in which the world finds itself, how can we begin to look for new ways of life? Which role can art as a technological, scientific, and social experiment play in this quest?
The artists in the exhibition sketch visions of potential worlds and underscore that we need to imagine possible futures in concrete terms for alternative modes of life to come into being. They reflect on how we treat nature and craft ideas for novel forms of life on earth.
