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.
