Welcome to ESC 2034, a platform where contemporary artists explore future visions. Since 2020, ESC has led open calls and exhibitions that probe the complex interplay of technology, nature, and humanity. This year’s theme, ‘A decade into the future,’ invites artists to envision the world ten years ahead.
ESC 2034 offers a journey through futuristic dialogues. Past editions have delved into the fusion of technology with nature, the impact of technology on mental health, and the true meaning of sustainability.
This year, we ask: Can our sustainability efforts withstand the test of time? Will AI emerge as a challenger or an ally in our journey? What will the state of nature be in a decade? How will technological advancements redefine our interaction with natural ecosystems? In what ways might emerging technologies help or hinder our pursuit of a more harmonious coexistence with nature?
Your project should envision the future interaction of human progress, technological innovation, and environmental stewardship. We encourage submissions that creatively question and reimagine the future dynamics among nature, technology, and humanity. Whether it’s through speculative design, digital art, mixed media, or other forms, your work should offer a thought-provoking perspective on how these elements might evolve and interact in the coming decade.
Submissions open December 20 and close April 20.
We’re thrilled to announce a physical exhibition in the Netherlands, with specific dates and venue details forthcoming.
Join us in creating a vision for the next decade, where art, technology, and nature converge to forge unprecedented scenarios and shape our shared destiny.
