The final of four events exploring the relationship between art, aesthetics and contemporary materialism.
'The problem of the future weighs heavily on the present. Much of the futurology we encounter today is informed by technocratic utopianism. Projects of envisioning the future often disavow their own embedded politics, and discount existing social and political blockages. For this workshop, Marina Vishmidt leads a discussion surveying future-oriented theory and philosophy, asking both how they might be used to configure political materialism in current conditions and what role art might play in this.'
This event is organised in partnership with the Philosophy Programme and Social Sciences in the City, University of the West of England (UWE) and the Working Group on Contemporary Materialism.
