This conversation on speculation, utopia and simulation between future researcher and cultural worker Isabelle Vuong and the artists Valerian Blos, Mikala Hyldig Dal, and Gosia Lehmann both reflects and speculates on new categories of present and future times. In order to open paths to doing and undoing reality, mental models, imaginaries and artistic works about the future are presented, and give new insights into the present. The artists introduce how they work with utopia, simulacra and re-enactment to better understand the relations between reality and fiction, materiality and immateriality, between past, present and future.Continue reading “Talking Future: speculation, utopia and simulation in art”

The Autumn Artist Exchange is a three-week open residency happening at Ponderosa in Brandenburg, north of Berlin, from October 8–26, 2018.
This time of the Autumn Artist Exchange is offered as an opportunity for artistic work and research in a collaborative environment, together with other participants.
The Autumn Artist Exchange will be sharing space at Ponderosa with two other parallel residencies — Tipping Utopia and Garden as Stage.
“Ponderosa is an art centre, a community, and a place to gather and exchange. It is located in the German countryside, in the village of Stolzenhagen, around an hour on the train from Berlin, close to the border with Poland. Ponderosa is well-known for its P.O.R.C.H. summer school, the Ponderosa Tanzland Festival, the Ponderosa Artists-in-Residence program, and the Ponderosa kitchen and gardens.” – ponderosa-dance.de
