A Vocabulary for the Future

What words do we need for thinking about the future? Do they serve ideas and concepts of the past or must we create new ones to name another possible world? Where will we find these words that have not yet been spoken?

“A Vocabulary for the Future” is a collective essay about the world to come, a project of creating a dialogue between thinkers, writers, and local and international visual creators to imagine together an alternative and more hospitable future. The result is fourteen original audiovisual pieces created by the Thinking Biennale, shaping a kind of incipient cartography, a first map for exploring possible exits from this damaged present. Revolving around a particular word, each piece is a vanishing point, an open window, an invitation to think anew about the way we inhabit the world.

More than thirty creators from different places, of varying ages, and working in a range of disciplines, including filmmakers, animators, visual artists, writers and thinkers, are taking part in this project: Rosi BraidottiLaida LertxundiJosé Luís PeixotoAndrés DuqueNona FernándezIsaki LacuestaStefano MancusoXiana do Teixeiro and Emilio FonsecaIngrid Rojas ContrerasDiana ToucedoJuan MayorgaCarolina AstudilloRaül GarrigasaitLaura Ginès and Pepón MenesesYan LiankeXisi Sofia Ye Chen and Cadhla Kennedy KoBruno LatourGerard OrtínKoleka PutumaIrene MorayMircea CărtărescuDostopos and Artur TortMarta Marín-DòmineCarla SimónKaren Barad and Blanca Rego.
