The American writer Ray Bradbury said: "Science fiction is the art of the possible." Under the guise of anticipating the future, it speaks to us of the present. It is a laboratory of hypotheses that manipulate and extrapolate the repressive norms and dogmas of today's world, its ambitions, social afflictions, opportunities and perils. A Gateway To Possible Worlds exhibition brings together over 200 works from the late 1960s to the present day. Art & science fiction whisks visitors away to a 2300m² sci-fi world. It puts the spotlight on the bonds between imaginary worlds and our reality with the help of artists, authors, architects and film directors. It builds on current demands for 21st century utopias to spark debate, inspiration and a form of hope.

The exhibition A Gateway To Possible Worlds. Art & science fiction is part of a critical and socially committed science fiction that emerged on the fringes of the hippie protest movements and explores the flaws of our immediate future, using philosophical, psychological, political, societal and ecological themes.

Exhibition catalogue - Mimèsis. Un design vivant

This book is the first in a series of works conceived with the curators of the projects, based on the Centre Pompidou collection presented in Metz.

The influence and imitation of the living through design, from modernity to the total fusion between the inert and the living in current scientific and industrial creation, is one of the main threads of the research carried out by the department responsible for design and industrial creation at the Centre Pompidou. Drawing a link between the biomorphism of modernist design and today's biomimicry, or even biofabrication and the recreation of the living through digital design, the exhibition will also show new acquisitions by major designers (the Serge Mouille, Branzi, Lovegrove and Hansmeyer collections), and will work in conjunction with innovative companies in the design sector, so as to pay attention to the industrial world, which has also been weakened by the global health crisis.
