In her current exhibition at Bildmuseet, Larissa Sansour takes us to a dystopic future where the Earth has undergone an ecological collapse. There, the human clone Alia addresses the trauma, life goals and dreams of previous generations. What stories do we take over from these? How are our lives shaped by this heirloom?
