Praça Mauá, 1 – Centro, Rio de Janeiro – RJ, 20081-240, Brasil
We are accustomed to museums full of heritage displays from bygone eras,
helpfully “seriated” for the visitor to tell a story of linear human progress toward
an “end”: the great metanarrative of (Western) modernity. This is not
so with the Museu do Amanhã (Museum of Tomorrow) in Rio de Janeiro. A
joint public-private partner venture (by the City of Rio de Janeiro, the Roberto
Marinho Foundation, Banco Santander, the British Gas Project, and the
government of Brazil), the museum was conceptualized as a dark but openended
narrative on climate change and the future of humanity.
