2219: Futures Imagined
Step into possible futures of Singapore 200 years from now and explore how our world might change.
This immersive and experiential exhibition is a journey into imaginary future worlds, featuring over two dozen artists, architects, filmmakers, writers and theatre companies from Singapore and around the world.
Throughout 2019, the Singapore Bicentennial has been examining Singapore's rich history since the arrival of Sir Stamford Raffles in 1819 as well as the 500 years before. The Bicentennial not only prompts reflection on the past two centuries but also invites speculation on the 200 years that lie ahead. 2219: Futures Imagined explores the 200 years between now and 2219 - the year Singapore will commemorate its Quadricentennial.
Unfolding over five Acts, the exhibition places visitors in scenarios that explore how our future lives may be impacted by climate change and loss of the planet’s biodiversity. The show provides a contemplative space for visitors to consider the global context that Singapore is part of, and how larger environmental forces will impact our home.
