The Narratives of a Near Future international conference is on at Genève’s HEAD on December 14 and 15.
Bringing together an interdisciplinary panel of artists, scholars and designers, the event “addresses the challenges that the next generation will have to meet.” For its 10th edition, participants will explore four central themes:
‘Rewind Forward’ looks at past, present and future, ‘Inhabit the Anthropocene’ examines the relationship between humans and the environment, ‘Decoding/Recoding’ concerns economy and digitization, and ‘Collective Super Egos’ will explore hybridity and fluidness in the body.
Through a series of talks, performances and screenings, Narratives of a Near Future 2017 will feature Marguerite Humeau, Metahaven, Jussi Parikka, Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige, J.G Biberkopf, Cécile B. Evans, Korakrit Arunanondchai, Lauren Huret, Ying Gao and Mathis Gasser, among many others.
