100 Years of Now. The Opening
Sep 30-Oct 04, 2015
Short-termism reigns. Today’s decisions lack a future horizon. A constant flood of snapshots feeds the fear of missing out. A never ending flood of new technologies promises to solve all our problems – until the next revelation of the impossibility of tackling deep-seated conflicts through technological management. 100 Years of Now combines diagnoses of our times with scopes of action, explores the potentials of the past, and unlocks alternative futures. Until 2018, HKW will be probing the countermovement to the dictatorship of the moment. 100 Years of Now. The Opening spotlights the emergence and side-effects of normative notions of time, the planetary entanglement of technological, human, and natural forces, global political conflicts and supposed side scenes of history.
