An exhibition within the frameworkof IAM Festival.
Within the framework of the Internet Age Media (IAM) Festival 2017 we curated an exhibition together with Perdiz about utopias, possible worlds and the role we have in shaping them. How we see the future, the attitude with which we choose to approach life, how we treat our planet, what form we would give a new one if we could build it from scratch.
Artists Rita Puig-Serra, Dani Pujalte, Mar Ordonez and Carlota Guerrero tackled these questions via photography, video, and performance.
good luck with the future
Good Luck with the Future is a journey of infinite paths, with a critical starting point and an uncertain destiny. It began as an exploration on how our generation lives and feels the future, to finish in an attempt to discover how do we perceive it ourselves.

La Ballade de l’Anthropocene
Produced by Mar Ordonez, the film is a reflection on the exhaustion and destruction of the world’s natural resources and the desire for an opportunity to be able to do things differently. Mar Ordonez is mainly known for her inimitable portraits of women. Her creations reflect on themes including identity, recurrence, and the body as a linguistic tool.
La Ballade de l’Anthropocène by Mar Ordonez.
La Danse is a performance piece by photographer Carlota Guerrero. Here, she reinterprets Matisse’s legendary painting; behind the dancing figures we find the concept of eternal return: creation following destruction. This model of eternal return suggests at a manner of living: choosing and acting in such a way that, if we were to have to go back and do it all again, we would do so without complaint and without fear.

The opening event took place at The Folio Club on April 27th 2017.
