Let us visit a unique exhibition “The Coming World: Ecology as the New Politics Protected content which is a major project that brings together historical and new works by over 50 Russian and international artists and will occupy the entire Museum building. It takes a look at a future already in the making, when the environmental agenda will become one of the main political questions.

By looking into the speculative future, the boundaries of which are determined by predictions that are no longer considered accurate, the exhibition highlights the uncertainty of our knowledge about events to come, while suggesting a “performative” understanding of the future as it is being constructed today and shaped by our activities in the present.

One of the missions of this exhibition is to provide an understanding of our collective ecological trauma and act upon it. By eco-trauma the organizers mean the knowledge of the imbalance we humans are creating, which we work to repress, due largely to the incomprehensible scale at which change is happening and partly out of fear of the inter-connectedness that the expanded understanding of Nature implies.

I’m looking forward to visit this fabulous exhibition together on the next Friday and share our thoughts and ideas.
