Training for the Future

20 Sep
22 Sep

Training for the Future is a utopian training camp where audiences become trainees in creating alternative futures, learning how to decolonize society, how to use extraterritorial waters for political action, create new forms of encryption, enact intergenerational climate justice, socialize artificial intelligence and campaign transnationally. Futurologists, progressive hackers, post-national activists, transnationalists, theatre makers, artists, and many others offer concrete exercises in alternatives to the present-day crisis within a training installation developed by artist Jonas Staal, situated in the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum. It seems a consensus today, that what is ahead of us can only be imagined as a disaster. Training for the Future instead aims to collectively reclaim the means of production of the future.

Training for the Future offers fourteen trainings over the course of three days, participation is possible for the full curriculum or for each training individually.
