location: Het Nieuwe Instituut, Museumpark, Rotterdam

The exhibition The Progress Trap questions the contemporary techno-centric perspective on progress and is a social commentary on the seductive qualities of technological innovation. In addition, the exhibition gives space to more personal experiences of progress, such as the desire to escape its current ideology and the awareness of being trapped in it.
