Maxim Velčovský, Catastrophe vase, 2007

One of the exhibits in our installation Back to the Future at Ještěd last weekend was conceptual design piece called Catastrophe by Maxim Velčovský. It is a big porcelain vase covered by rubbish and looks like it was discovered in the mud after the unknown catastrophe.

In context of it, we present there three utopians ideas about the future as a post-apocalyptic world. Their authors are looking for the special shelter protecting people against the dangerous environment on the earth after the unknown future catastrophe. Visions was created mainly by utopian modernist architects and thinkers in context of the period fear from nuclear weapons.
