Slovenian Cinematheque 
Miklošičeva 38, Ljubljana


2084 is the first in a series of video episodes by sociologist Pelin Tan and artist Anton Vidokle. The screening at the Slovenian Cinematheque is presented as part of the Parallel models of curating, an international colloquium organized by The Clark Art Institute and Moderna galerija / Museum of Modern Art plus Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova (MG+MSUM), Ljubljana.

“It’s 2084. Money has been abolished and people exchange information products as tokens of exchange. States have become ungovernable and borders have been redrawn by powerful individuals. Art has fully colonized life and every aspect of daily existence has become aesthetic. What used to be museums have now become data centers. Being is perpetual self-design. No one has a profession. There is no more work. A group of people meet in a city that was once called Berlin, and there they discuss the possibilities for independent cultural production…”

With: Rachel Alliston, Michael Baers, William Bennen, Klaus Hu, Anna Elise Johnson, Kinga Kielczynska, Raimundas Malasauskas, Jonathan Middleton, Tisha Mukarji, Ahmet Ogut, Arlette Quynh, Shuddhabrata Sengupta, Pelin Tan, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Anh Tran, and Lauryn Youden.
