We are happy to invite you to the opening of The future hides that it hides nothing.

The project investigates the production of imaginaries and scenarios of the future. With climate change rendering the future increasingly volatile, the project posits futurity as a crucial site of artistic engagement, one undertaken in constant dialogue with other fields. Set in the context of the water technology company Aquaporin, the project explores the parallel temporalities produced by artists, filmmakers, authors, scientists, corporations and non-governmental organizations.

‘The future hides that it hides nothing’ combines an exhibition, public conversations, podcasts, workshops, partnership development and texts. From this base of research and development, a long term engagement with the subject will be developed, informing coming projects and partnerships of Primer.

The project marks the beginning of a new working methodology for Primer, where a set of formats operate alongside and influence each other. This includes research-based thematic projects that engage emerging systemic issues, long-term collaborations with artists, public private partnerships with Aquaporin, collaborations with external partners, educational programs and communication about our activities.

Opening: Wednesday May 29, from 3pm - 8pm.
Exhibition period: May 30 - September 22, 2019.

Primer is a platform for artistic and organizational development.
It is located in the headquarters of Aquaporin, a global water technology company.
