By Chance, the Cycladic People

Following on from the 2014 Extinction Marathon which presented environmental and human crises facing the world today (co-curated with Gustav Metzger) and the 2015 Transformation Marathon, which proposed ways of identifying and effecting change in the face of increasing complexity, the 2016 Miracle Marathon focuses in on ritual, repetition and magical thinking to consider ways in which the imaginary can not only predict, but also play a part in affecting long-term futures. This year, the initial concept for the Miracle Marathon was developed together with artist Sophia Al-Maria.
