During this first public event of Uncertainty Scenarios, the involved artists will introduce existing and works in progress. The evening will contain a series of presentations by the artists alongside a temporary installation in the exhibition space.
The artists will elaborate on their own individual position within the project and relate to: cosmology, the future of technology, mythology, mining in Congo, science fiction and voodoo amongst others.
Uncertainty Scenarios is a collective experimental research project that explores the ways people throughout history have tried to speculate, predict and anticipate the future and different attitudes that go along with this. The project creates a common ground for a group of artists that all share interest in the concerns of the project and aims to establish a context for the development of new works. Together we reflect on possible consequences of current global socio-political or ecological issues and question our position as artists towards these.
