OPEN CALL | Media Art Exhibition ‘future past – past future’ | ArtUP! + transmediale

Exhibitions on the ArtUP! platform

The project ArtUP!, in unique collaboration with artists and curators from Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey, aims to create an online and on-site network in the three countries and to provide a platform for artists, curators and a wide audience in this deeply and diversely related region.

Open Call 'future past – past future'

Did the future look better back then? Is the future today already obsolete? Or is it perhaps the past, that nowadays seems almost blissful compared to the present we're actually living in? What future utopias exist in times of social, economic and political crisis, in times of spreading poverty, corruption and mistrust towards democratic processes? Are there visions for a better future at all? Or have we already caught up with our blooming future visions and dumped them into the trash can of history?

Curator of the exhibition is Sandra Naumann.
