Alserkal Summer Programme: The Invisible End – Artists and the Apocalypse

24 August @ 4.00 pm - 6.00 pm

Free, but pre-register

Data and measurement seem to have replaced visual invention. The scientist is perhaps more apt at depicting the conditions of this new apocalypse than the artist. Where do thinkers, artists and futurologists stand on this supposed bankruptcy of artists’ predictive vision?

This debate is part of a programme of debate, music, and dialogue on the theme of forecasting the future: what drives our need to prophesy and speculate? What are the dangers? What kind of demands does our perception of future outcomes place on the present? And is the future over-hyped? An interesting exercise, curated with no little imagination and a lot of variety by Kevin Jones and running every Saturday to 14 September.

All events are free but space is limited so pre-registration is essential at rsvp@alserkalavenue.ae.
