“Projects are prophecies, prophecies are projects” organized by the British Council
Projects are prophecies, prophecies are projects is a series of four podcast episodes. We’ll hear Stine Deja, Cecile B. Evans, Luca Lo Pinto and Jeanne Graff talk about the future through their own practices. The goal is to understand how different artists and curators approach imagination and creation. Talks are in English and are moderated by Natalija Paunić.
The project presents four conversations revolving around the subject of reality and its creation. It reflects on different realities that could exist in the future, our potential to have an impact on it, the virtual and the real, the magical and the scientific (or pseudo-scientific). The idea is to open up the subject of the prophetic potential of art, culture, writing, films and everything we do as creators. The series explores the position of seeing contemporary art and culture not only as a reflection on the state of the world and its reception, but also as something that is able to predict the future. Of course, how literally we take this statement is up for interpretation.
The series is made in response to the FUTURE ECOLOGIES programme. It has been supported and organised by the British Council. The podcast can be seen as an independent piece, but it also refines the context of the upcoming exhibition called 1999, set to take place in April 2021 at Eugster || Belgrade and Drugstore.
Podcast will be available online on website projectsprophecies.com and also on YouTube, Soundcloud and Spotify from March 9, 2021.
