About the exhibition

The Great Acceleration after WWII has propelled mankind to new heights. “Development” has been the banner over the past nearly 100 years, concealing the needs of other species. Men has unbounded desires; however, development cannot go on forever without limits, and it often leads to all kinds of imbalance and triggers conflicts. 2020 is a year of revelation. Mankind has ceded the center stage as due to their inability to fight against the pandemic, locust plague, and floods that have taken place in succession. Without activities of factories, blue sky and white clouds have returned; without ships, sea creatures have thrived. The various kinds of activities on Mother Earth will not stop due to the reduced footprints of human activities, and it seems that we are really the ones that need enlightenment. Post-Anthropocene is a futuristic fantasy, as development is no longer the cure for everything. Human activities are gradually reducing, as we have slowly realized that decline is not a problem; rather, the society should refocus on progress beyond material advancement. Post-Anthropocene is also a fable. As development satisfies human desires, is progress really a step forward rather than regression? As mankind retreated, other species take center stage. In comparison to the desolate ruins of men, aren’t other species thriving and progressing? Questions are raised through “Post-Anthropocene,” to review the intervention of space and human activities, and reflect on the relationship between men and other species.
