Today we observe collapse of any preinstalled orders. Degree of turbulence is constantly increasing as disasters keep happening, territories keep being annexed, countries are being destroyed, the wars start and terror goes on, politics go through a conservative right turn… Many troubling processes that a person cannot explain happen because the world is being submerged into a state of “liquid modernity”. This is the name of one of the latest books by recently deceased philosopher Zygmunt Bauman. It contains a range of metaphors and physical comparisons, which materialize with apparent acceleration. The book proposes an idea of liquidity, blurring and transparency of the world. The world becomes liquid. Liquids can gain any form but lack the capability to keep it. So is modern world – it is constantly and unpredictably changing, and therefore can be hardly understood or controlled.

The pressure of reality on a “melting” mind is colossal. Goals are being blurred as well as the values and norms, they change quickly and kaleidoscopically and for that reason can no longer serve as a basis for people’s rational behaviour – the irrationality reigns. Philosophers also talk about the “big modernity” in the meaning of “Big Time”, where different times co-exist. . “This is a hybrid flickering of many timelines and total contemporaneity. And this totalisation is hard to be lived in and felt. And it is what’s malfunctioning now”, – hard to argue with this statement of Katie Chukhrov.
But situation’s duality of all this chaos is amplified by the “container of the possibilities”, with some of them not yet uncovered and others already lost. We seemingly found ourselves in unusual showroom, a sort of a “waiting room”, where arises a possibility to turn off this flickering and totality, to end this exhausting situation of permanent liquidity and come for the transition of post modernism and its obsession with a new utopia… We are living through hopes and prayers. Hope can be misleading and delusional and therefore pernicious, but it can also be a saving stimulus that drags out of the abyss, supports the will to live, even in the most troublesome times.
In time of total show that erases borders between reality and fiction, and replaces meanings of fundamental categories of life, among all the disturbances, the only constant thing is a human’s striving for better future. An instability, collapse of settled schemes and relationships that knock the ground under the feet along with the confidence in tomorrow – they open more space for the immaterial – faith or nihilism, doubts, fears, hopes. In search for clues and support in this shaky and changeable space it is art, that in order to keep its visual influence, appears to be one of the most reliable and sometimes one of the most ideally accurate instrument not only for the fast reflection but it also becomes an explorer of the future. Without laying the straight, populist and “comfortable” way, it is still capable to mark the path with a dotted line and define the reference points.
