Tonight Forget About Your Houses and Cars deconstructs the allure of the apocalyptic. From bombs and explosions to cults and catastrophes, the exhibition explores the place of disaster in the collective imagination. Employing devices ranging from comic illustration to doomsday prophecy and postmodern meta-narrative, the artists in the exhibition consider both the historical and contemporary place of disaster, and the mysteries of its enduring appeal.
Artists exhibiting in Tonight Forget About Your Houses and Cars: Ahmed Alsoudani, Dan Colen, Tobias Collier, Christoph Draeger, Neil Hamon, Shinichi Hara, Justin Lieberman, Bernhard Martin, Ivan Navarro, Matt O’Dell, Reynold Reynolds, Christoph Schmidberger and Guy Richards Smit.
Exhibition co-curated by Katie Kitamura
