DESCRIPTION

At the Dutch Door Space at RAID Projects:

As long as there has been civilization, there have been prophecies of
the end. Meanwhile, the world continues to turn. The reason for the
total abandonment of Mayan cities remains uncertain in the eyes of
science, yet their calendar end date has been seized by contemporary
society as the next chance to imagine our end.

As the apocalypse looms, what does it mean for people living their
lives? Is it right to trust in the moment, rather than the end? Should
people skip work and plant community gardens? Is it back to bartering
and six shooters? Is this finally the chance to set out for uncharted
landscapes hunting the treasures that haunt your dreams? To some the
end is a grim and brutal final judgment, to others the dawning of a
golden age.

Prophecy Territory is the first in a series of End of the World Events
at the Dutch Door Space aimed creating a pleasurable
environment to embrace the end of the world.

Work by: Vanessa LaValle, Robin Latkovich, Liza Rifkin, and Wes Johansen
