The Near Future
CCA Center of Contemporary Art, Tbilisi
The Near Future is a Starship exhibition for the Center of Contemporary Art in Tbilisi/Georgia. In this exhibition the near future will be depicted in various spheric models and abstractions. Since nobody can remember the future, it will be necessary to draw upon the past, especially on short term memory, and construct a new image by layerings. The exhibition will be produced in Tbilisi, abstractions will thus be from Georgia, while the main reflections will be from Berlin. They concern ways of social movement, and what happens when people are positioned upon another and start a common artistic practice, as happened with Starship and other projects the main protagonists were involved in. The Near Future therefore is also an exhibition about co-operation and the possibilities to rethink the thoughts of others. Thus The Near Future must also be an exhibition about abstraction and the bars, necessarily put into communication.
The Near Future includes a special issue of Starship magazine in Georgian language and a poster.
