Theme evening “THE CRUISE” - The Sea

Theme evening “THE CRUISE”

About the film “Tomorrow’s Program”:
After a natural disaster, a group of people has found refuge in an isolated space in the middle of nowhere. Colored carpets, fake bookshelves and plastic plants determine the environment in which they now live.
In Elisophie Eulenburg’s Film “Tomorrow’s Program”, fact and fiction tell a contradictory story about a struggle for survival. Interviews report about catastrophic events, while they happily subject themselves to endless entertainment on board a transatlantic cruise ship. The experiences of the passengers on board, together with their subjective imaginations of a future world, produce a paradoxical narrative which the artist intersperses with sharp and telling imagery.

Exhibition 6.5. 17-19:00: Artist Vanessa Enriquez is present.

Finissage 13.5., 19:00
