José Luis de Vicente Curates "After the End of the World" Exhibition at CCCB

The exhibition After the End of the World, on display at the CCCB from October 25th 2017 to April 29th 2018, is a spatial essay on the present and future of climate crisis: a journey  to the landscapes of the Anthropocene Planet and a conversation with the humans and non-humans of the year 2100.

The show, curated by MaCT Faculty José Luis de Vicente, consists of eight immersive installations designed by Benjamin Grant, Natalie Jeremijenko, Charles Lim,Timothy Morton, Rimini Protokoll, Kim Stanley Robinson, Tomás Saraceno, Superflux, Unknown Fields Division, as a base for participative experimentation and action in the public space of the city of Barcelona.

Artists, philosophers, heaps of sand, novelists, sea creatures, playwrights, plants, architects, objects, speculative designers and scientists have worked together to imagine situations, to tell stories and to devise strategies for survival and peaceful cohabitation in the world to come.

The result is a hypnotic and startling experience, one that exposes the trauma caused by the magnitude of the crisis and the disappearance of the world we once knew, but also one that speaks of the opportunity for change and of the pressing need for an intergenerational pact.
