[Exhibition Opening] 17 Volcanoes

Future Cities Laboratory and NUS Museum, present 17 Volcanoes as part of the research project "Tourism and Cultural Heritage: A Case Study on the Explorer Franz Junghuhn". The contour of this project is shaped around a series of expeditions from Singapore to Java that track the itinerary of Junghuhn to 17 of his favourite volcanoes.

It aims at developing new methods and narratives of research and contemporary exploration. The expeditions are made by a small group of artists, scholars and professionals operating within the fields of humanities, science, urbanism and architecture. The expeditions pass through densely populated areas and volcanic areas, questioning the traditional opposition between the urban and the land. 17 Volcanoes performs this multi-disciplinary lens that confronts and reconfigures methods of knowledge exchange and research experience.

The exhibition includes works of art by Armin Linke, Bas Princen, Deni Sugandi, U5, and Wermke/Leinkauf and contributions by Elisabeth Bronfen, Adrianne Joergensen, Alexander Lehnerer, Sebastian Linsin, Clive Oppenheimer, and Philip Ursprung. It runs from 5 October- 31 December 2017 in the NUS Museum.

Future Cities Laboratory (FCL) is the first programme of the Singapore-ETH Centre, established by ETH Zurich and Singapore's National Research Foundation. FCL seeks to shape sustainable future cities through science, by design, and in place, with an Asian perspective.
