The exhibition aims to engage as wide an audience as possible in a dialogue around the paradoxical gaps between life as it is lived by a society of individuals, and the aspirations afforded by spectacular life as we absorb it through mediated images of ourselves and everything around us. Borrowing its title from the 1987 Primal Scream song of the same name, which captivated the mood of Britain's bleak Thatcher years, and informed a youth so redundant of hope they could only live in the now, so everything mattered right then. The exhibition demonstrates an artistic strategy of actualising the possible ways in which art can be developed today and still fulfill its historical mission - to carry on with the testing of Alain Badiou's statement 'the existence of the communist hypothesis, in our consciousness and on the ground', in order to engage with visitors, to create a temporary zone and an institutional rupture.
