Sydney-based instrumentalists We Lost the Sea will debut their brand new album Triumph & Disaster on their 10-stop China tour. The album is a post-apocalyptic view on the collapse of the world through a children’s story, illustrated through the eyes of a mother and her son as they spend one last day on Earth. In this album, We Lost the Sea talk climate crisis, over consumption, isolation and the loss of love and trust. It is a lament for the planet, all of us on it and the beauty we will leave behind.

Ongoing: 40 Years of Humanizing Technology

In this exhibition, the last 40 years, which witness the so-called ‘Digital Revolution,’ are examined. This period has sparked a rapid, global dynamic that is known as the Digital Revolution, which has become one of the global challenges for society. While it initially seemed a logical, further development of the Industrial Revolution, over time it came to pervade and digitalize the classic industrial model. Today, as a society, we are facing another paradigm shift with regard to our technology and our relationship to it. From automation to its autonomization, this paradigm shift will not only have an effect on industry, but will also be felt deeply in our everyday lives, forcing us to question our concept of being human.
