Demain est une île
Tomorrow Is An Island
Ends in 2 months: October 4 → December 23, 2016
Tomorrow Is An Island is a project by artist Jason Wee that speculating on deep time, the fate of ‘crisis’ as a frame of knowledge, and the exchanges between bodies and cities. What kind of future(s) can we imagine for our current conditions of fatal migrations, securitized fears and asphyxiated commons? What cultures of care, and what kinds of social contracts might persist between cities and their inhabitants? Together with a pool of younger artists and writers, tomorrow Is An Island looks far ahead into time to speculate about a possible handbook for building for that concrete utopia in the now.
We offer to take Montparnasse as a pretext as well as a territory to study and to experiment, where artists will pace up and down, observe, visit and investigate in and on the neighborhood to nurture the texts and artworks produced during a workshop that will take place from September 21 to September 30. Those productions will be shown in an exhibition starting October 1st, 2016.
