No Future?

100 - Automne 2020

Made up not only of teenage junkies, the punk scene advocates for progressive policies like direct democracy, feminism, and anti-militarism in order to negate the coercive aspects of futurity. In French, futur refers to a fictitious time beyond the present, diverging from the term avenir, which points to actual things-to-come. While new technologies are wrongly credited as signs of a benevolent future, climate activists are fighting for policy changes that take effect right here, right now. By mobilizing to shape a legacy of their own making, artist collectives such as Decolonize This Place are embracing punk’s impulse of self-realization in the present, as it slips into the future.
