Event description
Debate | The Invisible End: Artists and the Apocalypse

About this Event

Visions of the end of history have always tended towards the sublime—the apocalyptic moment in all its fiery, cataclysmic awe. While the act of seeing and bearing witness has always been fundamental to experiencing the 'end times', we are increasingly faced with the possibility of a more insidious apocalypse, one that almost escapes visualisation. Data and measurement seem to have replaced visual invention. The scientist is perhaps more apt at depicting the conditions of this new apocalypse than the artist. Where do thinkers, artists and futurologists stand on this supposed bankruptcy of artists’ predictive vision?
