Future Vocabularies—Future Collections
Collaboration between BAK, basis voor actuele kunst and Centraal Museum, Utrecht
Between 2014–2015, two Utrecht-based art institutions, BAK, basis voor actuele kunst and Centraal Museum, explore various collaborative possibilities by means of establishing a program under the title of Future Collections. The program runs parallel to BAK’s long-term project Future Vocabularies (2014–2016). While Future Vocabularies is a discourse-driven research, learning, exhibition, and publication series aimed at rethinking our conceptual vernaculars in face of changing social, economic, and political contexts today, Future Collections examines various modes of embedding such present-day, future-oriented discourse into the key activity of the museum: that of art collecting.
