​"Futurology is the art of positioning yourself in the here and now."

Beyond Your Blindspot

The future is often a technological fantasy, but Christiaan Fruneaux and Edwin Gardner of Monnik, Studio for Futures and Fiction, emphasize that a future society is mainly governed by other values, customs and world views. During the masterclass, Monnik will elaborate on the three blind spots of futurology: the cultural blind spot, the technological blind spot and the emotional blind spot. How can we get around them? Together we will look for ways to navigate towards Other Futures.
