Within the special programme for ARCOmadrid 2018, The Future is not what’s going to happen, but what we are going to do, curated by Chus Martínez, the museum is presenting Purple, a video installation by the British artist John Akomfrah. Through 6 screens, Akomfrah offers an immersive experience that looks at the effects of climate change and its consequences on biodiversity and the communities that inhabit the planet.
The work, which belongs to the collection of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary Foundation (TBA21), has already been seen at the Barbican Centre in London and after its showing in Madrid will travel to the Bildmuseet in Umea.
