The Past of Things to Come is an installation about an alleged occupation of a building. 
Zoe Hatziyiannaki’s research is based on the study of elements that belong to unofficial urban legacies of everyday city narratives. She uses photography to create a critical and sarcastic narrative of a dystopic future by applying fictitious and real events. 

The space is approached through a potential future archaeology. The visitors are invited to observe archive material consisting of photos, texts and video footage from surveillance cameras. The material concerns a room which appears to have served as a shelter in 2112 and its exterior surroundings. The work poses questions and redefines incessantly the relations of the private and the public, the outside and the inside, the local and the global, the past, the present and the future without leaving room for fixed or secure positions. 

With the support of NEON and the Architecture Syndicate.
