Futurity

This hundredth issue explores the theme of futurism, which offers new avenues for thinking about a more positive continuation of the world outside the traditional schemes of critical utopianism. Whereas according to our chronological way of conceiving time, the past would influence the present and the latter would act on the future, futurity proposes that the future we anticipate determines our present actions. Thus the future that we imagine would act directly on the present by shaping these actions. The notion of futurity can also be understood as a form of reparation inscribed in a decolonial perspective. Practices such as Afrofuturism and Indigenous Futurism, which specifically target these issues, are a focus of reflections on futurity. We also discover works that go beyond time frames, combining traditional knowledge and technology, ancestral myths and speculative fiction, works that are resolutely critical and committed to the future.

New New Age

Over the last few years, the occult has made a stunning comeback in art, manifested through a re-appropriation of esoterism, a holistic and beneficial approach, and a desire for social and ecological justice. The works in the portfolio New New Age stand out for their powerful intention to re-enchant the world, recognize the agency of matter, and campaign against the destruction of Earth and for all living things, by exploring what is luminous and performative in this philosophy and its rituals.
