‘The future hides that it hides nothing’ investigates the production of imaginaries and scenarios of the future. With climate change rendering the future increasingly volatile, the project posits futurity as a crucial site of artistic engagement, one undertaken in constant dialogue with other fields. Set in the context of the water technology company Aquaporin, the project explores the parallel temporalities produced by artists, filmmakers, authors, scientists, corporations and non-governmental organizations.
The project combines an exhibition, public conversations, podcasts, workshops, partnership development and texts. From this base of research and development, a long-term engagement with the subject will be developed, informing coming projects and partnerships of Primer.
Bjarke Hvass Kure is curatorial lead on the project.
