[SELECTION | MOST RECENT]
Who has the privilege to imagine desirable futures? Whose imagination are we currently living in? In this series of events – »Imagination Dinners« – dedicated to exploring the politics of imagination: And if there was space and time to imagine otherwise, what would desirable, just futures look like? An evening that allows us to explore how to train our muscle of imagination, how to shift our attention from what there is to what there could be, to enlarge spaces within which alternative ideals and practices can be tested and experimented. As bell hooks put it: “What we cannot imagine cannot come into being.”

PROGRESSOMASCHINE BY FUTURE_S
The “Progressomaschine” is the first intersectional and inclusive online election tool to help choose a party for the German national elections in 2021.
