    That's all Folks !

    The endless clash between Reason and Destiny

    Is that really all? The exhibition That's all Folks ! raises questions about the human condition, and the capacity of the individual to take control of his and everyone else's destiny and that of the planet.

    We are constantly provided with undoubted images of idealism, beauty and wisdom, but our collective recall is poor and our plans for the future intrinsic and self centred.

    The aim of the exhibition is to remind us that a clear and objective understanding of the world and its terrible history is vital to our achieving a sense of the present and our avoiding the constant repetition of our eternal and devastating mistakes.

    That's all Folks ! has a vast and global canvas, not devoted solely to a one theme. In a tragi-comic way it looks at our innate inability to divert the inevitable march of time. What is needed, the exhibitions says, is that we should regard history from another perspective, not to let fear, intolerance, intimidation or anger stand in the way of human progress and to examine history and the disastrous human record resulting from these fears, in a totally different light.
