Controlling Future: Technologies of Resistance
The Project “Controlling Future: Technologies of Resistance” is questioning the politics representations of future and political and economic control of those future narratives. Through artistic enquiry, exchange of knowledge and imagination it produces creative actions that challenge and deconstruct those narratives. Working together with activists, experts, citizens and researchers in different European capitals, it employs art as a technology for generation of ideas and potential solutions for the two strategic challenges: the future of human life and human labor. The broader mission of the project is to create a blueprint of the new collaborative interdisciplinary working processes between different activists, experts, citizens and researchers on the topic of future defining strategies.Enter Project →︎
