This is a collection of unrealized exhibition proposals – half-baked half-ideas and future ruins collapsed on top of each other. Since the number of canceled or postponed exhibitions has reached infinity, we are emancipated from the future. We ought to use present as a future tense and at the same time allow number of artists to decide how exhibitions will look like. Cherish the faith in fiction and speculation along with the need to conjure the future. It is a compilation of projects that may look best on paper, proposals thrown into garbage bin or hidden in drawers while still waiting for the right context. Here, the art is understood as a tool for constituting increasingly efficient concise metaphors and compression.
‘There is nothing more evil than announcing what you will do, and then doing exactly that’ JD
Visitors are kindly asked to remember that this show is not an extensive research about the medium of ‘exhibition proposal’ or a lamented presentation of the projects cancelled due to Covid-19 outbreak. Last but not least visitors are asked to wear face masks and keep the rules of physical distance.
