The Museum of Energy Transitions (Real and Speculative)
We are in the midst of a global energy transition. This exhibition provides a speculative space to carefully reflect on our relationship with energy by examining our present energy transition as if looking back from the future. The work in this “museum of the present” offers a critical framework to examine our energy pasts, to analyze our current transition, and to engage the radical imaginary for thinking about possible energy futures.
The images, texts, objects, and speculative fictions that comprise this exhibition were created by the CSU undergraduate students enrolled in LB393: “Cultural Extraction: Energy in The Humanities.” This interdisciplinary course examines the relationship between energy and culture through literature, art, film, and theory.
