How To Be a Person When the World is Ending

By Myfanwy Hocking

18 - 22 October

“I was expecting a knock. I was expecting a crash. I was expecting a fucking bang. I was expecting the walls to shatter and the ground to open to molten magma and my house to float down the street. I was expecting it to boil then freeze then boil again but as far as I’ve seen, the end of the world is watching shit TV with you fucks.”

A uniquely Gen Z approach to the Apocalypse, HOW TO BE A PERSON WHEN THE WORLD IS ENDING interrogates how it feels to exist as a modern youth when the world is on fire.
