XenoEntites Network will present a screening of the film Future My Love by Maja Borg, which explores collective and personal utopias. We also present the Venus Project, designed by the futurist and social utopian Jacque Fresco. How could such utopian models/projects shape human relationships?
“The future not only can, but has to be different, despite the heartbreak.” - Maja Borg
Future My Love is a unique love story challenging our collective and personal utopias in search of freedom. At the brink of losing the idealistic love of her life, filmmaker Maja Borg takes us on a poetic road trip through the financial collapse, exploring a radically different economic and social model proposed by 95-year-old futurist Jacque Fresco. How much freedom are we prepared to give to the ones we love? And how much responsibility are we ready to take for our society? Carefully weaving a texture of archive footage, black and white Super 8 film, and colour HD, Borg poignantly depicts the universal struggle between our heads and hearts in times of big change.
After the screening there will be a discussion with the curators and two invited guests: Anton Burdakov, a visual artist with background in neuroscience, and Wanda Vrasti, a researcher, writer, and nano-community organiser based in Berlin. They are invited to share their ideas on social utopianism and how this relates to their work and research.
Curated by Pedro Marum and Rita Macedo.
