MAKE KIN(D), NOT FUTURE(S) ONE-DAY CONFERENCE AROUND ‘IN THE OPEN OR IN STEALTH. THE UNRULY PRESENCE OF AN INTIMATE FUTURE’

The exhibition In the Open or in Stealth. The Unruly Presence of an Intimate Future, curated by Raqs Media Collective, is a multi-layered site of discovery that explores the concept of a future in which multiple histories and geographies are placed in dialogue, giving way to a plurality of possibilities and questions by following paths that interlace, entwine and expose relations between objects, feelings and concepts, while simultaneously tracing indeterminate spaces between them.

The conference will explore the main themes of the exhibition, but shifting the curatorial discourse in order to focus on specific subjects, such as the search for a revolutionary future presented by Adrian Rifkin in collaboration with Nina Wakeford; and Laura Benìtez and Andreu Belsunces’ speculative narratives about the future and the way these fictions can de-potentiate forthcoming possibilities. The programme will close with ¥€$Si PERSE, a countercultural and futurist project campaigning for a non-gender world, without labels or musical styles, that will place the dance floor at the very centre of the political debate.
