Organizing the Future (Or: How to Demand a Million More Years?)
Online talk with the artist Jonas Staal
with responses from Tim Lindgren and Carey Young
Thursday 8 September
9am-10.30am London BST // 10am-11.30am Zurich CEST // 6pm-7.30pm Melbourne AEST
In a time of futureless future, how do we reclaim the means of production of futurity? How do we imagine, pre-form and organize collective futures anew? In this talk, artist and propaganda researcher Jonas Staal will introduce his artistic practice, with a focus on what he terms “organizational art”: artworks that take the form of alternative institutions, such as stateless parliaments, utopian training camps, intergenerational climate courts and experimental biospheres. The talk will be followed by responses from Tim Lindgren (University of Melbourne) and Carey Young (Slade School of Fine Art, UCL), plus an open Q&A session.
