EMBARK! Feature interview magazine gives voice to cutting-edge artists and inspiring thinkers - often pioneers - who represent the Zeitgeist, address the urgent issues of our time, dare to take uncharted paths and chart new ways forward for our world of tomorrow.

EMBARK! is an editorial project based on an idea and concept by Madeleine Schwinge, hosted and published by re:future Lab.

The feature interview's common parenthesis is a questionnaire with five identical questions on the possible role of art, the impact of transdisciplinarity and narration for future transformation, and on personal creative strategies to start a new project.

Keynote / Lecture


6_CYBORGS'n ANGELS, Radical change is your vocation, 2021.jpg


What if art were the medium to catalyze future change?


A lecture on art as a method and social practice at the crossroads of time. Reshaping the future is not just an option, but an obligation. 


It is about external crises and internal upheavals, about dealing with uncertainty and complexity, about dreams and the power of narrative, fundamental shifts in perspective and the potential of imagination.


The lecture refers to contemporary art, architecture and design, philosophy, anthropology and science, gives insights into the scientific experiment and the process of creative design. Furthermore, visualized with a variety of artworks, it is a lively call to action. 


Engage Madeleine Schwinge, an experienced speaker and lecturer with a wide-ranging background, to make your next convention a statement for the future.

We are very pleased to announce the launch of the re:future Lab College and its advanced learning program.


Spanning over a year, Tomorrow's Lab is a guided journey through 6 intertwined labs, all tackling the most important sets of issues, challenges and innovations of our time. Based on the characteristics of experimental research and creation process, the modules are about traces, temporality, signals, amplification, composition, models, visualization, routes, serendipity, perspectives and performance.


Based on a maximal approach to experimentation and practice, this is a unique learning experience to make desirable futures tangible. It allows both individuals and leaders to get prepared for an unpredictable future in an unprecedented time of change. Even more, to shape present futures in an agile and constructive way, oscillating between yesterday and tomorrow.


The program is directed by Madeleine Schwinge and the faculty includes theorists and practitioners from art, art history, architecture and design, philosophy, anthropology, sociology, biology, neuroscience, and technology. 


Participants graduate with a thesis paper, their Master-Map, and receive a Future-Practitioner-Certificate. And as of this moment, they are part of the supportive Tomorrow's Lab alumni community.
