Memories of the Future will explore the ways in which, in our current ‘after the future position’, our imagination persistently draws on symbols, forms and technologies rooted in history, and memory.
Held in partnership with the Institute of Modern Languages Research, University of London, this conference will address questions such as: is the future a thing of the past? Is memory scrambled, reversed, reconstituted? Is ‘no future’ the new future? How do ancient myths and narratives construct future scenarios? How are myths and histories re-worked in contemporary artistic practises of the future present?
