  • Duration:1 month and 13 days

On 28 April, the story-telling spatial installation TRANSIT, a narrative space created by artist Mona el Gammal and her team, will have its premier on the forecourt of Futurium. Until 10 June, visitors will have the opportunity to see TRANSIT.

In TRANSIT, participants will be immersed in a future scenario that creates space for reflection on how our society is developing and puts forward alternative paths. Visitors will experience a story in which scientific findings are extended by fictional elements in order to point towards alternative futures.

The website www.commontransformation.com/ gives visitors the opportunity to follow the story beyond the exhibition period, to access content in the form of texts and podcasts, and to comment on the contributions.
