When you cut into the present, the future leaks out.
William S. Burroughs
The Invisible Generation is an ongoing contemporary art project that appears in different guises in Beijing, Melbourne, Kiev and Shenzhen, inspired by a text by William S. Burroughs with the same title. The venues have been carefully selected due to their specific historical contexts and their perceived trajectories into the future. The project takes its starting point in performative traditions, but focuses on practices and events that cross over into other time-based activities, such as sound, film, video, literature, theatre and workshops. The project offers new situations for art and audience to meet outside of where one expects to meet an art piece or performance. The Invisible Generation allows the artists and audience to investigate how art can become a tool to shift our outlook at reality when it appears with an element of surprise.
