(call in het Engels)
ESC — is an online exhibition that traps your view and mind in the future, to be precise in 10 years. Primary the ESC aims to reflect the dreams and expectations of the artists. This is a study of a particular individual’s connection with the environment, experience, and knowledge. A thought on something unexplored: in another time, in an unknown space, with an unknown audience. In reality, we propose the freedom to explore something new!
It is our revolution, an answer to the contemporary design and art scenes… in 10 years from now. It is an escape from reality, a time machine if you will.
We think better about future selves. While at the same time predictions about the future or the past are equally ‘knowable’ on the basis of the present and equally accurate. We strive to explore this connection with the past, present, and future.
The ESC open call is also the opportunity to understand more about how we see and perceive ourselves in the future. For example, when people think of themselves after 10 years, the part of the brain that thinks of themselves calms down. And this process is amazingly similar to when we think about other people in general. In other words, ESC open call gives us a chance to tap into the future perception of all people from individual points of view.
