Questioning the future


How can we, facing radical upheavals and unprecedented crises, prepare for the times ahead and find solutions for the pressing issues of our time, both at individual and social levels?

As no model can accurately predict the future, re:future Lab dares to focus on speculative scenarios that, without denying problems of today, attempt to build sustainable and balanced futures. The wide range of featured artists and protagonists are all forward driven thinkers, capable of challenging our habitual mindsets and expanding our imagination.

The exhibitions and accompanying programs are staged as thematic episodes within a narrative stream and an overarching theme, EMBARKING FUTURE, setting their sights on new future utopias.

"Imagining a future where success depends upon our ability to be permanently cognitively sharp, quantifying ourselves with data, and able to work the long and irregular hours assigned by algorithm led corporations, Catalog for the Post-Human provides tools to help workers cope with circumstances in which their bodies may be pushed to the limit“, (Parsons & Charlesworth)
