The exhibition explores the issue of the permanent transience that we experience today, both on a global and personal level. Partly due to technological progress, partly due to the evolution of social and biological systems, not only has the present become unpredictable and uncertain, but the future looms as an apocalyptic endgame. However, transience also holds the potential for choice and change, which can derive its power from the very ground of this prolonged state and creatively mobilise this power. By capturing the present moment and extending it, the works on display offer possible alternatives in the face of our ever-changing everyday lives. The international group exhibition will use a variety of techniques and media (installation, multimedia) to capture and convey states of transience.
