The Future was already here

2011 Heide Nord Leipzig Margret Hoppe Ralo Mayer

Starting with the term of a Second modernism, the hot time of the Cold war I’ve started the exhibition project by the title “Zukunft hatte begonnen” / “The Future was already here”, following Robert Jungk’s “Die Zukunft hat schon begonnen” / “The future is already here”.

After the end of World War II there had been parallel cultural evolution marking the end of the age of modernism. This era inhabits a specific focus on the term of future, a determination of things to come in a world of unity. The exhibition gathers some artist positions dealing with this ambiguity.
