Every historical journey ends in the future
After one century of state history, the Centre for Civil Education in Vilnius decided it was time to think about what was done in all this period and, more than that, to imagine what might be done in the foreseeable future.
Unforgettable Futures: Visions for Lithuania’s Centenary is a unique example of storytelling, a way of experiencing the History that is not possible using books. A place where you can dive into a whole journey: three periods of Lithuanian history: the interwar, the occupations, and the present are depicted by the most astonishing visions of scientists, politicians and active public figures of those days.
The exhibition presents an undiscovered side of the Lithuanian past, broadening the term of history from mere occurrences to the force of ideas. Even though not all of the 40 visions presented in the exhibition became reality, they reveal a desire to create and improve the human condition even through the toughest times of history.
The shaded exhibition hall with mirror details, a personal tablet, and headphones help to create an intimate environment. With the help of big, immersive visualizations on the walls, visitors are told about the turning points of history that also affected the content of visions.
As the motto of the exhibit says: “The best time to create is now”. No doubt.
