Come together to virtually paint the future.
In 1900, a group of French artists drew their visions of the year 2000. Some turned out to be pretty accurate; some we’re still waiting for.
Fast-forward 120 years to a time which has been turned upside down by the Coronavirus — with people far and wide coming up with ideas for how this experience will change us. During this creative experiment, we’ll get together virtually and draw our own images of what life might look like in a post-Corona future, inspired by futurists of the past.
So if you’re looking for an activity to keep you busy and connected to other people in these weird times…. mach mit and create some art with us.
By tapping into our collective energy, we’ll find hope in this moment of uncertainty and imagine what kind of a world we can re-create together.
About the Host
Postcards from the Future is a history and art project based in Berlin where participants come together to create artwork envisioning the future. Based on a series of postcards from the early 20th century which envisioned life in the year 2000, an important part of the project is to promote conversations about our future today: what kind of world do we want to live in, what do we think the world will actually look like, and what are our greatest hopes, dreams, and fears?
With the state of the world on everybody’s mind these days, Postcards from the Future is being offered as a virtual workshop, giving participants an opportunity to take our minds off the news through the simple activity of making art and new friends together online – while seeing the world as it could be.
Sign up on Eventbrite, and we will send a direct email with links the day before the event.
