Soon Enough: Art in Action is an exhibition about futures. It is inspired by the urgencies of our time, and a conviction that artistic practice can communicate complex problems and coordinate resistance. Some art works in the exhibition address the future directly, others point to phenomena, topics, skills or attitudes which will be more important in days to come. Self-organisation, craft, and manual skills, play a certain role in the exhibition. So do collaborative methods, research-based practices, the rural, and cosmos. Media such as painting, sculpture, video, photography, performance, and installation will be featured.
