2050. A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE FUTURE

September 9th - January 22nd, 2016 / The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium and the Louvre Museum come together to present a unique and innovative project!

Paintings, sculptures, photos, videos, installations and digital art: over 70 contemporary works question our future up to 2050. The exhibition of the RMFAB addresses major societal themes such as over-consumption, global conflicts, scarcity of natural resources, social and economic inequality, the mutation of the human being. However, these complex topics are challenged by positive and constructive visions, sometimes even humour. Belgian and international artists such as Sugimoto, Boetti, Kingelez, Warhol, LaChapelle, Gursky, Op de Beeck, Yongliang, Turk, Alÿs, AES+F,… invite us to (re)think the future.

 

The complementary exhibition of the Louvre (24.09.2015 > 04.01.2016) anticipates the future based on a subjective reading of the past and translated by artistic creations from the previous millennia. These two exhibitions are inspired by Jacques Attali’s book A Brief History of the Future (ed. Fayard, translated into 18 languages).
