Futureproof: Evidence, Rehearsal, Resistance

Taking its inspiration from the term 'futureproof', which first appeared in the field of information technologies in the 1980s, the open call focuses on practices aimed at minimizing perceived future risks by scripting and rehearsing crisis and probable disasters at various scales in all areas of social life ranging from health to finance, from corporate communication to information technologies and climate change, resulting in the production of a future-proof reality.

The shaping of imaginaries of the future around disaster-oriented scenarios invites us to think about the shifting borderlines between reality and fiction. Through the dictate of short-term saves, the "present" expands under political and economic pressures and attempts to swallow both the past and the future; future technologies such as artificial intelligence and AR/VR applications, reach back into this present at a speed far beyond the time of public debate and transform the ecosystems of data, evidence and information. How and where can we publicly represent these emerging realities and the new chrono-logics they entail?

How do we liberate the future from risk management techniques, and reinscribe it into the realm of collective imagination and shared mythologies that can embrace the unknown and the unexpected? Is a future that is proofed against risk through rehearsals of the most extreme fictional scenarios ever to come, or is it a negation of future entirely?
