Places of Hope is an exhibition about the future. It deals with the question how the future surfaces in the present; in the way we think we ‘know’ things about the future, what we feel about the future, and how we in other ways relate to the future.
Places of Hope is a transdisciplinary experiment aiming to build on what we know about the future to fuel a debate on how we want to live and organize that future. The exhibition does so through ‘experiential futuring’: through immersive installations in which visitors are invited to actively position themselves in the future. The Urban Futures Studio has contributed to curating five rooms that are presented below.
Apart from this role in research and curating the Urban Futures Studio is actively programming the ‘University of Hope’; monthly meetings in the ‘atrium’ in the midst of the exhibition spaces. For programme details, please see www.placesofhope.nl
