Artists Talk

A journey beyond the end of the world

After the End of the World

The creators who have given form to the exhibition "After the End of the World" come together to construct a joint narration with eight voices. Taking as a starting point their projects for the exhibition, the participants share their research in areas such as artistic practices, architecture and speculative design, contemporary philosophy, and participatory theatre.

Presented by the exhibition’s curator, José Luis de Vicente, this activity is designed as a journey in three acts to the landscapes of the Anthropocene planet with images and stories, and speculates on escape routes to the various possible futures beyond climate crisis.
