FUTUREMUSEUM’s Museum of Catalysm features a range of artefacts, scale models and reconstructions showing what life was like before, during, and after the catalytic events of the 21st and 22nd centuries. Showcasing treasures from the age of affluence alongside examples of the creative solutions that characterised life during and after the crisis, the Museum presents a spectacular and fascinating archaeology of growth, collapse and survival – and the lessons to be learnt from our turbulent past.
Piecing together a fragmented history from the objects and stories which reach us from the past, the exhibition perhaps asks more questions than it can answer, but there is plenty to think about in the informative displays, and you will find your imagination fired by the vivid stories and portrayals of life as it may have been.
“The best exhibition I have seen in my town for years”
“An eye-opening perspective on the way we’re living. Makes us seem absurd.”
“Post apocalyptic living has never seemed so appealing”
“This makes me step out of my well-worn habits of thought”
“Really enjoyed it, looking back and seeing different things each time”
“Brilliant and Creative. A great use of multiple media … Bring on the Apocalypse!”
