Talking about the Future – a multi-layered narration about the possibilities and impossibility of the Future

By Silvia Amancei and Bogdan Armanu

-conceptual framework-

Searching for answers and solutions for the reorganisation of life and global social relations, critique and artistic intention remain captured within aesthetics and poetry. Finding oneself between the hammer and the anvil, the compromises and limits of art have to be renegotiated: How real is the potentiality of artistic criticality? How to speculate the future and social change without falling into the net of fetishization? How to capitalize on the imagination capacity of poetry in order to compose a future in common outside the logic of money? How to break the borders of the world, be it material or digital, and distribute knowledge and wealth across the world?

Afterword

Silvia Amancei (b.1991) and Bogdan Armanu (b.1991) is an artist couple living and working in the city of Iasi, Romania. They graduated BA (2013) and MA (2015) studies at “George Enescu” University of Arts (Faculty of Visual Art and Design) in Iasi. Collaborating since 2012, their artistic practice could be positioned at the border of social studies and visual art, having as a main research interest the potentiality of art and artistic means to overexcite the ability to look beyond capitalism and create a (common) future.
