"What you see in front of you, is the past. You cannot see the future," Tarik Yildirim said one evening over dinner. "The future is behind us." The exhibition gathers artworks to think about time: vertical time of ideas passing from one generation to the next; from one place to another; time at a human scale of a single life lived; deep time of soil and season; time as sound; time as pause; time that turns space into place.

The Future Is Behind Us marks ten cities and 22 years of James Webb's Prayer (2000–). This is the first time that the prayers from all ten cities will be played together.
