Through the perspective of different contemporary artists from around the world, the exhibition, Par-delà l’horizon liquide, shines a light on the possibilities offered by certain speculative tales that try to foresee the future. Taking climate change at its starting point – which is causing the clear weakening of the material world and the rapid expansion of new immaterial resources – Par-delà l’horizon liquideshows us a post-planetary world ruled by mega-data and explores the way in which artists working with different media have attempted to come to terms with these issues
