:: ABOUT THIS EVENT (EN/AR) ::
Dust to come is a re-screening of a former online program at New Media Projects which will take place both online/offline in our space and via our website. Was it ever our future? “The Removed Agency” got me by surprise when I received the invitation to contribute to the Future Threads Program. A teenage sci-fi fan, who never watched Star Trek or Star Wars, I asked around from my artist, cinephile and writer friends, and in our conversations led to some interesting findings. On the surface, we don’t talk/write/speculate about the future, a few animated fantasies, a few novels dealing with alternative history, and some timeless dystopian theatre play. And soon I realised I need to educate myself about video games and comic books. Not only we don’t write/create our takes on the future but often being omitted from having future in many other scenarios: in some films, middle-east is consumed/destroyed, because of its natural resources and/or appear on some war room’s wall map or flickering dots on a screen during a pandemic outbreak. The future is blurry; we made countless Macro & Micro mistakes; we know the storm is inevitable; we watch science fiction, or we don’t… The future was never bright as they promised it to be, for some parts of the world is still as non-existent and discriminatory, as if it wasn’t pictured at all and never predicted. See-through eyes, laser guns, and flying objects became killer drones, 3D printing both an environmental threat and a cure for ventilator shortage. The colourful plastic future once was pictured dreamy and chic but no one told us about the dust to come.
