An exhibition by AMO, the think tank of the OMA and Rem Koolhaas, “Countryside, The Future” present speculations about tomorrow through insights into the countryside today, will be held at Guggenheim Museum in New York from February 20th, 2020.
“Countryside, The Future”, is an exhibition addressing urgent environmental, political, and socioeconomic issues through the lens of architect and urbanist Rem Koolhaas and Samir Bantal, Director of AMO.
This is not an art show. This will be the first time that a major art institution will dedicates itself entirely to everything which is not art. Those are stories that are defining our future on earth. “An exhibition like this would have been impossible twenty years ago.” says Rem.
The exhibition will examine the modern conception of leisure, large scale planning by political forces, climate change, migration, human- and non-human ecosystems, market driven preservation, artificial and organic coexistence and other forms of radical experimentation that are altering the landscapes across the world.
