Just what is it that makes today so familiar, so uneasy? is the title of LIAF 2013. By rephrasing the title of Richard Hamilton’s famous collage Just what is it that makes today’s homes so different, so appealing? (1956), LIAF 2013 aims to explore a shift that can be described as one from a condition of successive crises followed by recoveries, to one where crises shape a new permanent condition. It is a question prompted by our present that seems to be stuck in a continuous loop, in which the predominant ideas that have shaped our world are unsustainable and unimaginative when it comes to solving everyday problems people face in most parts of the world.
