Futurology Kiosk 2022
solo exhibition, mix-media project in the kiosk.6 Weimar
The kiosk: Time Capsule
Settled in a small GDR kiosk that was used for the newspaper's distribution in Eastern Germany, the Futurology kiosk presents a distortion of our timeline, where past, present, and future suddenly collided. Combining multiple mediums, sound, installation, and performative objects, its futuristic experience unsettles the present and speculates on the future through its conceptual inventory - imaginatively designed broken ceramics. The artifacts are excavations from the future bringing nostalgia for what has never happened.
Future Nostalgia FM: Imaginary Radio
Radio team: David Bilek, Nadja Kracunovic, Dean Ruddock, Denise Lee
The experimental, imaginary radio, combines speculative storytelling, poems, sounds, and audios that overlap eras - from the distant past to the possible future. Its nostalgic, but futuristic content is created by sound artists worldwide that reflect on the topic.
Objects: Broken timeline
The objects displayed in Kiosk’s windows are tools for better understanding the present and open the space for discussion through playfulness, as the stimulants for a collective redefinition of reality. Moreover, the design of everyday objects is usually focused on aesthetic and functional possibilities rather than visions of how life could be. When reversed, many processes confuse the regular timeline. The Kiosk offers this possibility and the objects of non or multiple functionalities while creating an unusual, futuristic setting in public space. Fraction, fiction, and fragments. Elements of something that never existed.
