Learn what afrofuturism is and what it shows us about the power of fiction, imagination, and hope
Before diving into what afrofuturism is, it’s worth looking at plain old futurism. It might sound like a made up concept from science fiction but that’s sort of the point: any theory about the future has to be built on fiction, as the future hasn’t happened yet.
A futurist finds meaning in the future, imagining what might be possible when we get there. In literature, this act is often called speculative fiction. But futurism can be applied to a multitude of disciplines, from architecture to legislation.
By using the future as a starting point, futurists can establish ideal worlds, ideas, and creations that incorporate their beliefs, prompting us to look at what might be possible, and what needs to be done to get there.
Very good, and thank you for sharing your photos with us.
Here I send you a few minutes of audio with some impressions about your project :-)
Let's keep practicing, let's keep looking. Hugs from Barcelona in these uncertain times, I hope that your whole environment is more or less well, for anything we see you here or on the networks ;-)
