The Coming World

What’s going to happen to the Earth over the next few decades? Obviously, things will change a lot, but nobody knows exactly how. Now, Moscow’s largest museum of contemporary art, the Garage Center, is hosting an exhibition that may give you an idea of just how different things may be, as seen through the eyes of artists.

‘The Coming World: Ecology as the New Politics, 2030-2100’ presents the works of 50 artists from Russia and abroad. The exhibition features both historical pieces that mark various turning points in our relationship with nature, as well as creative experiments from contemporary artists. Exhibits include a video saga on global warming, art works produced in collaboration with animals, and installations that warn us about the Earth’s declining biodiversity. There are also interactive exhibits where visitors can meet a 670 million-year-old jellyfish and even feel what it’s like to be a spider! The project is so large that, for the first time in history, one exhibition will fill the entire Garage Museum, and even the square in front of it! 

The curators say the exhibition’s main message is that we shouldn’t separate ourselves from the nature. If we are to avoid an ecological disaster, we must realize that everything we do affects the environment and change our attitude towards the world. The years in the exhibition’s title refer to events presented in popular works of pop science and science fiction. According to some estimates, the world will run out of oil in 2030, and Arthur C. Clarke predicted that, in 2100, human life will be able to expand to other planets and star systems.
