The nation was finally moving away from its post-war austerity and into a more modern society. In a new show titled Is This Tomorrow? Jaque is an architect. In connecting the dots between seemingly far-flung developments, the artists reveal the corrosive thread neoliberalism is weaving through society, eroding not just the natural environment, but also forms of community and human connection.
