Futures and Fictions

Nominated for the 2018 International Center of Photography Infinity Award in Critical Writing and Research

In what ways could we imagine a world different from the one in which we currently live?

This is the question addressed by the essays and conversations in Futures and Fictions, which explore possibilities for a different “political imaginary”.
With discussions around decolonization, new Afro- and other futurisms, post-capitalism, science fiction, and new kinds of social movements – and the intersections of these with contemporary art practice and visual culture – Futures and Fictions creates a space for alternate narratives and image-worlds that might be pitched against our neoliberal present.

With contributions from Mark Fisher, Ursula Le Guin, Kodwo Eshun and Oreet Ashery.

“An embarrassment of riches for anyone even remotely interested in thinking about the possibilities that inhere in the times they live…” – Carl NevilleThe Quietus
