Cutting-edge technologies associated with alternative energy sources for transport (such as hydrogen fuel) that are being developed and presented by Hyundai, remind the artists of the open worlds of large video game universes such as the GTA series, where the car is one of the fundamental elements of gameplay. Addressing the theme of the exhibition—simulation as an artistic method and a way of cognizing the world—the performance Hydrogen City creates a poetic space for modeling the future based on game mechanics, focusing on problematic areas of social structures, linking power and technology, while also offering a critical look at the issues of objectification and exploitation of marginalized communities and how these topics are represented in the mainstream entertainment industries.
