Speculations on Other Futures


During her research trips in war and (post-)conflict zones Brigitte van der Sande found an unexpected amount of SF literature, visual arts, theatre and films that envision alternative futures as a way to critique existing power structures while shunning censorship.

In countries where continuous change is the status quo because of war or political instability, thinkers, artists, and writers are deeply engaged with the radical potential of the SF genre. In this talk, Van der Sande discusses how her long-term research on war led to the realisation of Other Futures, a multidisciplinary online and offline platform for thinkers and builders of other futures.
