Project: A Void. Meditations on a boring dystopia
This exhibition challenges the audience to take a self-critical look at the current state of their city. An installation made up of both digital and traditional art components, “A Void” explores where late-stage capitalism has led us, and how modern Toronto has become not only dystopic but also incredibly boring. Here we will confront the bleak reality of living in a city that has lost its soul, and we will celebrate the institutions and leaders that have let us down. The piece reveals how the seemingly mundane appearance of society on the surface is actually oppressive and dehumanizing, lacking individual freedom and creativity. In this boring dystopia, people are subjected to routine and monotonous tasks while their lives are controlled by powerful institutions, corporations, and governments. “A Void” is not just a critique of the city, but also a call to action. The exhibition asks us to imagine a world beyond the current reality and to resist the normalization of this boring dystopia.
