Directed by Robertas Narkus and produced by both Autarkia & Kim?, the “cabaret invites you to [reimagine] the near future as promised by sci-fi entrepreneurs” and includes work by Rainyr Askher, Gints Gabrāns, Kipras Garla, Antanas Gerlikas, Laura Kaminskaitė, Žygimantas Kudirka, Jonas Palekas, Nerijus Rimkus, Antanas Skučas, and others.

The exhibition immerses itself in fantasy, where thoughts of ‘spiritual perfection’ are attained. From large banners and a cave-like hole in the gallery wall to tiny offerings made on a piece of paper that ask what is the weather forecast for our next conversation?, Autarkia sets out to provide “an artist day care centre, a club of interests, an office for putative experiences and imaginary solutions.”
