Future Shock | Author: Irene Hofmann

Future Shock is the catalogue accompanying SITE Santa Fe's exhibition of the same title.

The name is inspired by Alvin Toffler's prophetic book Future Shock (published in 1970), in which he describes the profound impact of the acceleration of technological, social and structural change in contemporary life. Themes explored in the exhibition include: the role of technology in our lives and the effects of globalism, population growth, surveillance, privacy and the Anthropocene.

With Toffler's predictions and warnings as a backdrop, this exhibition brings together a group of artists whose works imagine a range of visions of our present and future.

Future Shock includes works by Tom Sachs, Lynn Hershman-Leeson, Doug Aitken, Alexis Rockman, Andreas Gursky, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Patrick Bernatchez, Dario Robleto, Regina Silveira and Andrea Zittel.
