    Abstract

    Infrahauntologies is an international group exhibition foregrounding recent practices that engage with questions of infrastructure. The predominance of certain outlooks on the world versus others is partly due to their embeddedness in and diffusion through the systems, technologies, and infrastructures of the built environment. For this reason, a recent pushback against the popular idea that we are destined to live in some sort of eternal present—with no recourse to shaping a different and more equitable future—has looked to infrastructure as a medium of innovation that might suggest otherwise. In an attempt to counter the impasse of “the canceled future,” art has immersed itself in formulating speculative models and propositional thinking around systems and infrastructures, and from this position attempts to address major challenges such as the rampant financialization of the economy and runaway climate change. Artists: A.S.T., Bassam El Baroni and Constantinos Miltiades (in collaboration with Georgios Cherouvim and Gerriet K. Sharma), João Enxuto and Erica Love, John Gerrard, Assem Hendawi, Bahar Noorizadeh, Vermeir & Heiremans Curated by Bassam El Baroni
