Immerse yourself in an artistic intervention curated by Simon Joseph Doyle with artists from RMIT Master of Arts (Art in Public Space) program.
Drifting through the newspaper stories associated with the Carlton Hotel under each of its iterations since its construction in 1889 stories of human decadence, betrayal, goodwill, humour and the body politic present themselves with themes and undertones that could find resonance today.
In the post war world of the Letterists International and the Situationists god was pronounced as dead and humanity challenged to change its understandings around society, economy and class.
Conceiving the present social and political state of affairs with the middle east in turmoil, attacks across Europe and significant tensions in the Baltic States and the South China Sea one may come to the conclusion that humanity has failed this challenge.
With all of this in mind artists have been asked to create a ficto-mythology of the future.
