Save Event: Auto-Destruct

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


‘I wonder if great inventions are not the invention of problems rather than the invention of solutions’. Jean Hyppolyte


Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop is pleased to announce its April/May exhibition ‘Auto-Destruct’, a group exhibition of works relating to and reflecting upon the nature of our aspirational technological inventions and the destructive nature they become. Many of the works regard the automobile as the device that was seen as liberation, independence, a revolution for mankind, but that has in fact led to wars, contributed to climate change and is responsible for over 3,000 deaths a day. The ubiquitous vehicle is not scrutinised for its monstrous reality and current car branding still sells a lifestyle as a symbol of wealth, glamour and independence.
