“RIGHTS OF FUTURE GENERATIONS” curated by Adrian Lahoud
A trans-disciplinary team from Indonesia, Singapore, and Switzerland has come together to investigate the story of the subak – the complex irrigation system of Bali that has, thanks to the close cooperation of farmers and priests, held the island in a balance for a thousand years. Composers Vivian Wang and Dewa Alit, artist collective U5, and architects Li Tavor, Alessandro Bosshard, and Matthew van der Ploeg, working with Adam Jasper at ETH Zürich, explore the homologies of landscape, time, and music. The project recounts how the hydraulic and cultural landscape of the subak became one of the first sites of resistance to the so-called Green Revolution.
Our film contribution "Double Bind" (2019, 25 min, HD) will be screened during the whole exhibition period in the location of the Al Jubail Old Vegetable Market
U5 was part of the research team „17 Volcanoes“, a research project on tourism and urbanization by Philip Ursprung & Alex Lehnerer for Singapore ETH-Centre/Future Cities Laboratory from 2015 - 2018. The project is still running.
