The international group show A Posthumous Journey into the Future explores fiction and modes of speculative writing and storytelling in contemporary art as a method to create emotional and intellectual understanding of the cultural and planetarian crisis we are in, due to climate change.
What can we learn from a romantic and subjective experience of relating to the world, by sensing and imagining? Can a time-leap, neglecting the industrialization produce a framework for alternative ways of living and thoughts? The “Posthumous Journey” can also be understood as a questioning of the anthropocentric point of view, where acknowledging agency in nature also gives space for new imaginaries, opposed to colonial and other hegemonic structures.
Participating artists: Imani Jacqueline Brown, Alma Heikkilä, Johannes Heldén, My Lindh, Mónica de Miranda, Håkan Jonson, Signe Johannessen and Eglė Budvytytė.

Inauguration of the piece Time Circuit for Radiotorget in Gothenburg.
The work consists of two heated bronze seat marks set into the staircase facing Radiotorget, and a sculpture with solar cells that heats the seat marks. The seat marks were left by two residents of Radiotorget: a 95-year-old who has lived there since it was built in the 1950s, and a 10-year-old child who had just moved into one of the houses built on the square when the artwork was created. If you sit on a mark, you can be warmed by it and become part of a circuit through time and space, through the energy of the sun as well as those who left their mark.
