When the going gets weird, the weird gets pro (Hunter Thompson).
Old traditions don’t seem to work anymore while new ones haven’t yet established. The pertaining state of uncertainty becomes uncomfortable. Rapid advancement of formal acceptance of otherness causes alienation and a renaissance of nostalgia.
Black swans, elephants, jellyfish, (white) ravens, etc. are used not only as the metaphors to highlight possible emerging issues, but as alter-egos for the protection of otherness. They represent the internalised and externalised challenges and potentials that keep futures rich.
Fusing futures, aesthetics and critique, Agence Future and Avenir Institute organise an experience of creating the (un)familiar Other, that speaks of reality and ways of writing yesterday, today and multiple tomorrows.
The workshop is invitation-only and is a part of Uncertainty Scenarios project of Enough Room for Space.
