Lichtundfire is pleased to announce Apocalypse Yesterday/Tomorrow or the Cultural Inability to Change the Future, an exhibition of works in all media addressing reoccurring instabilities of the past, presence and foreseeable future as seen in the cultural, social and individual fabric of humanity.
Combining poignant historical, political, and personal references, the artists in this exhibition refer to the human oblivion and resistance to acknowledge looming disaster or to count themselves into the ‘pool’ of the ones being affected by it.
Individuals and societies, generation after generation, are seemingly living on from calamity to calamity unfazed by the mortal threat or their cultural demise: the proverbial ‘Dance on the Volcano’ treated as a given normality, a lived paradox as part of the essence of existence. Wake up calls seem to reverberate and be left unheard, even confronted by the most condemning and alerting evidence of environmental, cultural and personal disasters, we move on, push forward or plough through- after us the deluge.
