They investigate visions that have turned out to be illusions or utopias that have become into dystopias. The title of the exhibition is drawn from Paul Auster's "In the Country of Last Things", a disturbing tale of life in a city where the social fabric is breaking apart. The works of the exhibition pose the question how ideas are realised or fail. Thereby, in every failure the original hope that led to its attempted realisation is still present and remain palpab.
