A MAK exhibition


Through the lens of literature (Climate Fiction), fine artists explore the possible impact of the climate crisis and pandemic outbreaks in CLIMATE PANDEMICS. The effects of epidemics and climate catastrophes are the subject of many post-apocalyptic narratives and novels by authors like Margaret Atwood or James Graham Ballard. How will human society adapt to the new reality? What new, genetically modified species will come from it? And how can we attempt to live “post-apocalyptically” without first having to live through the apocalypse? Topics like these will be ad-dressed by the artworks on view in the exhibition.
