'Dystopian Realism', a Group Show Curated by Václav Janoščík at Cursor Gallery, Prague

Following the investigative search for a shared world, the series of four exhibitions for the full year program of the Cursor Gallery, continues with a second episode about the future, possibilities and dystopias, which have seemingly narrowed the comforting distance of tens or hundreds of years, and are getting closer and closer to the present. One of the most repeated sentences of contemporary philosophy is: “It is easier to imagine the end of the world today than the end of capitalism.” But is our imagination truly that limited? Customarily, it has always been art that continuously expanded the horizon of imagination, possibilities and the future. This is not about another wave of apocalyptic threats and experiences; this is about overcoming the spirals of work and entertainment, activity and apathy; this is about questioning the old language, looking for new points of orientation and reconciliation with the time of catastrophes and political crises, with a life without answers, but many challenges on the fluctuating horizon.
