MOD. Museum in Adelaide Reopening 18 August 2020
In response to the South Australian Government’s Roadmap for easing COVID-19 restrictions, MOD. is officially reopening on Tuesday 18 August.
To ensure everyone has a comfortable and safe visit, you will notice some changes at MOD. These include capacity limits throughout galleries, increased cleaning of touchscreens and interactives, and social distancing and hygiene guidelines. These changes are for your safety and enjoyment of MOD. while you visit.
Seven Siblings from the Future
The year is 2050. In southern Australia there is a plot of land known as Eucalara.
Eucalara is already feeling the impact of climate change. Climate refugees started arriving decades ago, invasive species are on the move, and water is an increasingly precious resource. Amongst all this are seven siblings. The siblings have inherited this land from their great-grandmother, but can’t agree on what should be done with the land. They each have a different idea for what qualifies a good life and a good future.
Meet the siblings and help to shape the future of Eucalara through the choices that you make. SEVEN SIBLINGS FROM THE FUTURE asks what sort of future we want for South Australia. We consider the way that our personal values shape our decisions. How do these choices affect our community?
Adapted from its original showing at the Heureka Science Centre in Helsinki, MOD. is stepping into 2050.
Visit Eucalara in person from 30 November 2019 until 12 December 2020.
There are images of bushfires and embers in this exhibition that some visitors may find distressing.
LIFE INTERRUPTED is an online exhibition that will grow with time, with iterations from previous exhibitions, as well as new ideas and creations. It’s made up of things to help you feel prepared, like Bad News Game which helps to immunise you against fake news. It has things to feel connected, like a community-built, lush virtual garden in Minecraft. And there are things to distract you, like soundscapes meditating on place by Adelaide-based musicians and artists.
For more information and all enquiries please visit the MOD. Museum website.
