It is a long time since this moment

It is a long time since this moment is a speculative imagining of future uses of the human body in a world where rapidly changing networks of ecosystems, capital and labour are hostile. These rapid shifts can no longer necessarily be called ‘progress’. As our environment deteriorates, so too do humanity’s constructed notions of the body and the self as something fundamentally distinct from our ecosystems, technologies, and other forms of life. The artists featured examine how our interrelated systems of bodies, human and nonhuman, might interact with and inform one another. It is a long time since this moment explores our anxieties around the survival of life on earth to reimagine our relationship to the future.
