"Yesterday's Tomorrows: An Exhibition of Futuristic Utopias in Comic Strips"
2000-08-18 until 2000-10-01
Museum of Finnish Art, Ateneum
Helsinki, , FI

The comic strip exhibition Yesterday's Tomorrows takes a look at futuristic utopias from past decades. The theme of the exhibition is not the future itself, but rather the way the artists have seen the future from their own time. The wildest dreams and most outrageous utopias are all reflections of reality.

The exhibition presents works by European, American and Japanese artists from different eras. It tackles themes such as science, technology and spirituality, technology and society, and body image. The illustrations show how early science-fiction comics were optimistic about the future and opportunities presented by technology in particular. The exhibition also reveals how the classic space heroes of the age of innocence later evolved into mixtures of flesh and metal, transformers.
