IN CASE OF EMERGENCY at Science Gallery Dublin

What’s the difference between a collapse, a downfall, and a downright apocalypse? How will it all end, and why do we love to wonder? Ice or fire, zombies or bombs? Out with a bang or a whimper? And can we do anything to stop the decline?

IN CASE OF EMERGENCY, the new free exhibition at Science Gallery Dublin, launched on 13th October 2017 and runs until 11th February 2018. The exhibition explores why the disastrous can be devilishly entertaining, and whether there’s any truth to the dismal predictions made by pop culture portrayals of the end of the world.
