An exhibition curated by Cao Fei to recount reality, revisiting it with a language rich in fantasy and imagination, projecting it into the future between tradition and fiction.

From the fictional documentary to the melancholic love story, from the hyperreal vision of the future to the reinterpretation of history, from the post-apocalyptic scenario to the dream dimension, these artists choose different angles of human existence to share their interpretation of modernity and the influence that technological development has on society.

Inspired by the original character of Chinese science fiction, born from the encounter between humans, wonder, the universe and the mysteries of nature, these artists overturn the popularisation of purely scientific or technological concepts to present an often pessimistic vision of the future, and the role played by progress, constantly drawing attention to the present of the community.
