We will have had darker futures
If one dreams of ecstasy and lameness
If one dreams of going and never really getting anywhere on a little path through other things
We Will Have Had Darker Futures attempts to weave together past, present and future and to mix it all up into a time loop allowing our sense of temporality to be blurred.
We Will Have Had Darker Futures thinks of possible futures through daydreaming, language, and dance while emphasizing the passage of time in the act of collective finger knitting.
We Will Have Had Darker Futures is a short term detachment, a visionary parallel reality that contemplates the bounds between past and present.
“Crocheting against the apocalypse. […] Even the utter dystopian can at the end take a turn towards the utopian.” Sydsvenskan 28.02.2018 (in Swedish)
Workshop We Will Have Had Darker Futures
We will provide a space for shared creativity, where we knit and collectively daydream. We will play games through conversation and imagination, playing with our sense and experiences of future, past and present.
