Mauro C. Martinez’s second solo exhibition with Unit London takes its name from Friedrich Nietzsche’s parable, Thus Spoke Zarathustra. The Last Man is the philosopher’s term that represents the antithesis of his theorised super beings, the Übermensch, whose arrival is signalled by the prophet Zarathustra. Unlike the Übermensch, the last men are archetypal nihilists, they take no risks as all of their needs have been met. Martinez’s exhibition considers Nietzsche’s parable through a contemporary lens, inviting us to view the last man’s condition not as a moral failure of the individual, but as a response to the failure of the institutions that supposedly sustain us. Somewhat unexpectedly, the artist presents us with images of technology as beacons of positivity, change and resistance.
