Whence the Future? – lecture by Alfredo Cramerotti

Alfredo Cramerotti (MOSTYN ǀ Wales) will deliver a lecture on the idea of time, knowledge and future.  Following a text co-authored with Jean-Paul Martinon (Goldsmiths College, University of London) and published in ‘The Curatorial. A Philosophy of Curating’ (Bloosmbury, 2013), Cramerotti asks us to abandon our androids, tablets, computers in order to rethink how the future comes?  His reply is that it comes from the immemorial past that old stories (for instance, in newspapers) always seem to hold ready for us to discover.  Once opened, the work then consists in curating for ourselves our own future.  With Cramerotti, the curatorial knowledge becomes the way in which the future is articulated.
