FRAMEWORK PROGRAMME: 24/01 – 27/03 2018

 

The exhibition “FAVT: Future Africa Visions in Time” explores visions of the future emerging from Africa and its diasporas. What concepts of future developed in moments of uncertainty and rupture, e.g. during the First World War, or in the liberation movements? How is future represented and visualized in art and fiction? How do social mobility, alternative lifestyles or a sense of identity and belonging shape the challenges and visions of the future today? In which ways does the past resonate into the future? And how can we anticipate future from a troubling present?
