    First performance
    Jahrhunderthalle, Bochum

In a time of increasing global crises in politics, economy and ecology, dystopia has become the new futuristic norm. Training for the Future instead creates a training ground where audiences turn into trainees for a self determined alternative future. This preenactment is an introduction to a larger project to be launched at Ruhrtriennale 2019, when in an environment of various historical utopian artforms and never realized architectures visitors will be trained for radical futuristic scenarios by group psychologists, survivalists, free zone engineers, identity hackers, science fiction authors, futurologists, artists, activists, and cooperative game designers. Who owns the means of production of our future? How can we regain control over it?

Training for the Future, a Pre-Enactment, is a first public exercise in the upcoming training curriculum and combines small-scale trainings with lectures and discussion on how to reclaim the future as a site of collective action.
