About the Exhibition
"Throughout human history, fear and prophecies predicting an imminent "end of the world” have proliferated. This exhibition aimed to provide a balanced focus between the contemplation of Apocalypse, Doomsday cults, right alongside the creative activities aimed at achieving the longed-for promise of Utopia." - Founder, Director and Chief Curator, Rebecca Hoffberger
