Yesterday Will Be Better: Taking Memory into the Future

Yesterday Will Be Better: Taking Memory into the Future
Library Shelf Location 17.YEST
Publication Date 2010

In recent years, the theme of memory in the sense of ‘mnemonics’‚ has been the subject of many discourses and projects.

Yesterday Will Be Better tackles interfaces between past and future that have scarcely been addressed.

The starting point for this project is a contradiction: George Brecht’s impossible prediction that ‘Yesterday Will Be Better’, distorts the old platitude that ‘everything was better in the old days’ into the paradox that ‘yesterday will be better’.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition Yesterday Will Be Better, 21 August to 7 November 2010, Aargauer Kunsthaus, Aarau.
