A group of nomads, a potato, a toy robot, an old woman, a bacterium – Peruvian artist Gonzalo H. Rodríguez gives voice to these human and non-human actors inside. They all helped to build “Villa Futuro”. A fictitious city, which can be walked around by the exhibition visitors as a model made of electronic scrap.

The story of how this city came into being cannot be told linearly. It reveals itself as a narrative structure without a beginning or end, to which visitors can gain individual access via an AR app.

What initially creates the impression of a pile of rubble turns out, upon closer inspection and listening, to be a living city that, with its speculative stories, aims to inspire the wandering exhibition visitors to reflect on topics such as technological globalization, climate change, marginality, and life in the collective.
