On 17 June 1989, Francis Fukuyama mentioned for the first time the End of History, referring to the endpoint of events generated by humanity, which have reached the highest point in the history of civilisations.
According to his thesis, all events after that moment in time are repetitions, circular and redundant, of events that have already taken place.
The future has ended.
On the same day, the Chinese space agency secretly launched the Kaiju 2 probe. The mission’s aim: to reach the so-called Event Horizon, on the border of a black hole, where time stops, light disappears and matter collapses.
The goal: to see what was on the other side.
This video is the last message sent by the Kaiju 2 probe before it disappeared inside the black hole.
“Revolutions”, by Francesco Jodice, is the outcome of the commission assigned to the artist by Fotografia Europea in 2018 on the theme “Revolutions, Upheavals, Changes, Utopias”. The artist worked on the concept of circularity in history, producing a video project that draws inspiration from a true story. The film strikes the audience with its clever play between reality and cinematic fiction, as well as its surprising use of colour.
