Applied research approach, emphasizing a transdisciplinary dialogue. Exploration of cutting-edge artists and ground-breaking protagonists on future determining fields of mutation.
Concept and copyright:
A feature interview magazine, giving voice to cutting-edge artists and pioneering future protagonists, all dealing with crucial topics of our time. The common paranthesis is a questionnaire with five identical questions on the impact of art; transdisciplinary work; speculative futures for Humans, Non-Humans and Earth; hope, narrative & creative process.
"More than ever, we need the transformational power of art as a signpost into new spaces of possibility. Art can make a valuable contribution to human shift and social transformation needed for the times ahead"
Essays on key issues, phenomena, and metatrends of our time, on social discourse and philosophical questions. It is not so much about what we could create, but more about how we should create a future that is humane, sustainable and fair.
