Demain est une île
Tomorrow Is An Island

Past: 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.
