24 November, 2019, the buildings standing on reclaimed land from the sea are fading, and we are drifting at sea. If we travel back to the deserted Hong Kong during the sea ban of the Ming Dynasty, how would you survive? What knowledge and resources would you take back? What role would you play and what kind of civilisation would you rebuild? We’ll find all the answers in a ‘hackathon’. In a ‘hackathon’, participants with diverse skill sets collaborate to find solutions, design prototypes, and imagine new possibilities.

‘A Guide to Apocalypses Past’ takes artist Xiaoshi Qin‘s commissioned work in Café do Brasil as a starting point and invites participants to improvise a blueprint for surviving the Apocalypse.
