Future of the Past 2012: Belgrade

Photo series since 1996, on Alu-Dibond, varying size, often 100 x 70 or 70 x 100 cm

 

The photographic series Future of the past is concerned with utopian-like buildings and ruins from the socialist past in ex-

communist countries. An end-of-time mood hovers over these images, the subjects of which seem to come from science-

fiction films. The photographs depict towers, housing and office blocks and closed down factories, buildings which earlier

seem to have embodied some belief in future prospects, be they social or economic. In their present, derelict state they ap-

pear to embody the utter failure of a social and political utopia.
