The Imagined Futures Series

Stuart Hall claimed that “people have to have a language to speak about where they are and what other possible futures are available to them”. Progressive political thinkers, artists and organisers have consistently worked to widen the spaces in which the language of possibility, of the imagination, can be exchanged to give expression to liberatory realities. Angela Davis’ scholarship on abolition, Frantz Fanon’s call to “try and set afoot a new (hu)man”, or Claudia Jones’ vision of an internationalist future all chart imaginative paths towards alternative realities by critically diagnosing the conditions of their present.

In the spirit of these thinkers, the ‘Imagined Futures’ series seeks to forge a space wherein the language of possibility can be nurtured. We asked a number of artists, writers and thinkers to draw links between resistance and the imagination; between life as it is lived and the world of ideas; between past struggles, instances of resistance and emancipatory futures. The result is a collection of thoughtful articles that speak to the conditions of the contemporary moment in order to assert that other worlds are possible.

We will be publishing articles from the Imagined Futures series on a fortnightly basis. Sign up to our newsletter to be notified about the latest release!
