Festival of Mind: Futurecade
Futurecade is inspired by the many and varied visions of technological utopia that were a feature of 20th century World’s Fairs or Expos, in particular those held from 1939 to 1964.
From Futurama, Norman Bel Geddes forecast of the future in New York in 1939/40 to Atomium at the 1958 Brussels Expo – all combined the concept of technology as utopian progress and imagined the world of tomorrow. Taking its name from the 1939 exhibit Futurama – Futurecade combines two of the themes of the Festival of the Mind; virtual and utopia and reimagines the synergy between art and technology.
