An Exhibition on the Infinity of the Present Time

THE FUTURE OF MEMORY – Kunsthalle Wien – February 3, 2015 – March 29, 2015

Digital communication and virtual interlacing shape our world today and influence our collective memory. Remembering the past, experiencing the present and imagining the future all meld to become part of a seemingly equivalent imagery in digital space. The Future of Memory critically challenges constructions of reality and investigates the conditions under which individual and collective memory evolve.

The exhibition The Future of Memory will be accompanied by an e-book, available as a free download on the Kunsthalle Wien website and with iBooks. The hard copy version will be purchasable via Books on Demand. The publication introduces essays by Clint Burnham, Michael Connor, and Nicolaus Schafhausen, alongside a detailed presentation of the works exhibited in the show, written by co-authors Marie Egger, Emilie Lauriola and Vanessa Joan Müller.
