Kinetica Recommends: Mars & Beyond

Mars & Beyond is a vast immersive art experience merging two critical themes of the 21st century: firstly, the catastrophic rise in global warming, deforestation, animal species extinction and plastic pollution in our oceans; and secondly, the revival of the space race.

Taking place across five floors of Southbank’s iconic Bargehouse, ‘Mars & Beyond’ will explore the human race now and in the future, incorporating interactive sculptures, stunning projections, VR, AR, film and workshops. Examining the science of our planet and presenting imaginative alternative futures, ‘Mars & Beyond’ will be an unforgettable experience, aiming to educate, caution, entertain and inspire audiences of all ages.

Set at the close of the 21st century, ‘Mars & Beyond’ looks back in time to the year 2020 – our present day – creating a perspective, through the artistic lens, from which to consider solutions for the current state of our planet. The brainchild of visionary artist Oskar Krajewski, the show welcomes everyone, from young to old, lovers of art, the Earth and science fiction.

Kinetica Artist Member Oskar Krajewski is the founder of creative studio Art-Recyclism, and for ‘Mars & Beyond’ will collaborate with more than 40 artists and contributors, including Greenpeace, Sci-Fi London and Flux. As we look for solutions and try to predict our future, things may not seem optimistic or sustainable.…but we believe art can play an important role in our survival!

‘Mars & Beyond’ will run 20 February – 15 March 2020. The experience will run Monday – Thursday 11am – 10pm and Friday – Sundays 11am – 11pm with fresh and special features in addition to the permanent programme.
