Thinking about the future from the past

The Foto Colectania Foundation's new exhibition Indirect speech reinterprets history through the eyes of 8 contemporary artists.

What if we were to leave the present, travel back in time and think of a new future? What if we explained that new future through the eyes and voices of others? Something like that is what we’re offered in Indirect Speech, a project that gives us the chance of thinking about the future from the past.

Photographers Eve Sussman, David Maljovic, Peter Piller, Jordi Colomer, Adrià Julia, Chris Mottalini, Javier Peñafiel and Thomas Steinert have built through other characters short stories that are situated in specific historical events like Yuri Gagarin landing on the Moon, industrialisation in the Netherlands in the 50s or the assassination of Leon Trotsky. A reconstruction of our memory that creates a unique cocktail of past, present and future.

The exhibition is co-produced with Bòlit. Contemporary Art Centre. Girona and sponsored by Banco Sabadell Foundation. You can see it in the Foto Colectania Foundation from November 12th until January 28th. And if anyone was wondering, don’t worry, this time you don’t need a time machine.
