Future Imperfect: Cultural propositions and global perspectives – Part 3

Future Imperfect brings together an international line-up of artists, writers and cultural practitioners to consider ways in which artistic practices can help inform and shape collective futures. Through performances, interviews, panel discussions, and a screening programme, contributors will highlight how present histories and institutions are being shaped through propositional speculations on the future.

This symposium is organised by Ibraaz and supported by the Kamel Lazaar Foundation& in partnership with Tate Modern.
