NOTES ON TOMORROW

If we think of contemporary art as a social system – an idea coined by Niklas Luhmann (1992) putting the arts in the realm of perception -, we locate art in what it does at its best: showing possible realities, through a critical observation, of the world we live in, at social, economical and political levels.

It is precisely in this idea that the history of the collective exhibition Notes on Tomorrow unfolds.  The characters (the works) of this story come together in a series of dichotomies. Firstly, the large in conflict with the small; on the other hand, the visual formalisation of the contrasts between History, fiction and memories; the relationship between the observer and the observed; contemplation and creation; networks of information, stories and seemingly random events; and, finally, the contradiction between known and unknown, translated by the desire to discover, to change to something beyond the horizon and, paradoxically, the need for familiar refuges.

These dichotomies are not about presenting definitive answers for contemporary society’s challenges but more about looking into a series of questions, observations and experimentations. In this way, these representations reflect the ambivalence of human relations. In other words, it is about visually translating small utopias at local levels through inventions, desires and propositions.

Notes on Tomorrow comes in a series of twenty-one voices from different European cities (Arad, Aveiro, Genoa, Harghita County, Kaunas, Kristiansand, Lecce, Pardubice, Valladolid, Vilnius, and Zagreb) to dwell on possible perceptions about current social issues and includes installations, drawings, texts, diagrams, videos, photographs and different kinds of situations.

PARALLEL ACTIVITIES

  • Jorge Peligro will make the collaborative mural "OXYMORON" in one street of Kaunas. The project consists on making big illustrated letters on a wall with the word “OXYMORON”* and, inside the letters, scenes of contradictory human behaviours or simply contradictory concepts, fitting within the “Notes on Tomorrow” philosophy.
  • Tvrtko Buric will present the installation “The sign after”. The project puts emphasis on the relationship between man and the nature. Like it happened in Italy, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia, Brazil, Abu Dhabi... water goes away but leaves its indelible signs. Symbolically such signs are represented in this work with “fake water” that, being solid, cannot be removed. This mirror of the reality that surrounds us, invites the man to reflect on who he is, and on his responsibility.
  • Stefano Bucciero presents the project VR360. VR360 is a tool can offer an immersive experience, like a virtual tour, augmented reality, multi sensorial video…Using an homemade “cardboard viewer” and mobile phone people can visit any place in the world or flying over the sky of Tokyo, see a music concert, visit a museum…everything you can do it's limitless, the main idea behind this project it’s share emotion and connect people, the project it’s open source.
