The term 'Terra Incognita' was used in ancient cartography to indicate the existence of unexplored places and lands. Along the 2018-19 The Institute takes this reference as a starting point to speculate about fictional territories, places and landscapes invented by artists, that have served as literal and metaphorical sites of subversion, anti-authoritarianism, utopia and fantasy.

The opening event of the 2018-19 programme 'At the crossroads of different pasts, presents and futures' reasons on the standardized representation of historical narration, the intertwining of different time frames, and the act of transmission as a form of resistance to power structures. Invited artists Simon O'Sullivan, Mohamed Abdelkarim and Nicoline Van Harskamp inhabit and construct worlds of their own logic where imaginary communities, invented characters, and historical figures interlace their existences and produce counter narrations that recognizes the existence of different times and landscapes. Artist and thinker Simon O'Sullivan gives a talk about mythopoesis, myth-science, mythotechnesis addressing fictioning as a 'counter-strategy' against today's post-truth and post-fact political terrain; Nicoline Van Harskamp presents her film 'PDGN' that portrays a future no longer controlled by national governments or global corporations, and where a new linking language is seen to develop between people through voluntary self-instruction; to conclude artist Mohamed Abdelkarim performs 'When it comes to truth I wouldn't dare to tell it', a narrative fictional anthology consisting of anecdotes, poems, songs and radio drama that revisits History and its impacts on complex social issues.al territories, places and landscapes invented by artists, that have served as literal and metaphorical sites of subversion, anti-authoritarianism, utopia and fantasy.
