Group exhibition / New scenarios on everyday life
Taf is pleased to present the group exhibition Days After opening on Thursday, June 16th and running until July 17th, 2011. The show Days After was selected after Taf’s open call to young curators for submission of an exhibition proposal.
The exhibition Days After is instigated by disaster and the rhetoric on catastrophe. The discourse on great deterioration defines the present situation but also that of the near future. The relationship between man and nature is in crisis. The same is true in entirely anthropogenic sectors such as economy, ethics and aesthetics. Within this context the discussion to understand the situation is constructed, in some occasions leading to verbal terrorism and in others to a creative process of searching for ways to face it.
The exhibition aims to present different visions and utopias for the future through a scenography of ideas and practices that could potentially be realized directly. Optimistic or pessimistic scenarios and points of view are presented together in an effort to show that change in our way of life always provokes crisis; A crisis related to how we manage all kinds of resources, natural or human.
Scientists, artists, architects, designers, researchers and any kind of professional or amateur invent in their own way new scenarios on everyday life, the habitation of cities and the countryside. The exhibition presents illustrated architectural projects, experimental industrial designs, art and literary works (paintings, drawings, collages, videos, installations, poems).
