Scientific discoveries, technological progress, and shifts in political and ethical visions alter human consciousness and lives. Wars of large scale on the ground and in virtual reality, overexposed private lives, implanted microchips, accelerated particles, and frozen embryos all provoke us to think of great changes, and that future has arrived.

This art exhibition is dedicated to contemplation of the future, formatted by artists through the language of art. Participants explore such themes as environmental changes, human nature, consequences of scientific progress, human activity, or noninterference. Most of participating artists create their own parallel sciences – an approach which the artist Andrey Prigov called ‘scientific autism’.
