If we lived in the best of all worlds, then destiny would be our best future. That’s seldom the case in the books, films, and predictions about the voyage through the space-time continuum. the chronically fatal situation: the battle for frontiers and identity, the human race threatened by self-generated artificial intelligence – ultimately, the future of humanity. Antenna Futura follows tangents with such compelling themes, but it’s main focus probes the thought patterns we develop to create an image of the future. Utilising notions of the archive, magic, prognosis, and other methods of prediction, the presented objects, paintings, installations, photography, and video works address the core question of the exhibition: How can we conceive the unknown? We contemplate, speculate, and fabulate under the influence of the wealth of information and potentials spawned by an overloaded present.
Imagining how the Earth will one day be and how we will experience it in the future also implies confronting it together with our present and past. Antenna Futura has transmitted signals and activated its sensors to receive answers from the infinite array of possible future scenarios.
