STEPHEN C. WAGNER CURATOR'S STATEMENT

Imagination is our window into the future! Visionaries, philosophers, rulers, astronomers, economists, politicians and scientists all try to anticipate the future and forecast the world of tomorrow. Predicting the future has been, and still is, a part of every society. Visions of the future draw on medicine, climate change, scientific discovery, international development, financial crises, disease, war, and evolution. These utopian visions significantly affected the rise of several political movements in our modern history. It is unfortunately ironic that Stalin's totalitarian mass genocide, the conquest of the native inhabitants of the Americas, and the European and American slave trade are all examples of atrocities committed in attempts to implement such visions of the future.

The works in this exhibition portray visions of a dystopic future, societies with repressive social control systems, government coercion of citizens, influence of technology on the human mind, loss of individuality, lack of freedom of speech and threatening artificial intelligence.
