In the graduation exhibition Tempted by Tomorrow a broad scope of artists and researchers are presenting the accumulation of their practice based research completed during the past two years of the MA Media Design and Communication program at Piet Zwart Institute. The diverse range of works exhibited demonstrate a critical engagement with the contemporary media landscape.

Consdering media history and the changing role of tools and technology in society the work employs different media to reflect critically on different subjects. The works oscillate between elements of physicality, portraying, representation, identification, communication, social engineering and more pertinent questions on the contemporary media landscape.

Artists: Mihail Bakalov (BG), ehCaetano (BR/NL), Junyu Chen (CN), Ana Luísa Moura (PT), Henk-Jelle de Groot (NL), Lucia Dossin (BR & NL), Max Dovey (UK), Elleke Hageman (NL), Joseph Knierzinger (AT), Artyom Kocharyan (AM/NL), Lídia Rodrigues (PT), Mathijs van Oosterhoudt (NL) & Nikolaos Vogiatzis (EL).
