Terrassa Solarpunk

November 30, 2017 @ 17:00 - December 2, 2017 @ 21:00

Baumannlab Solarpunk Terrassa Lab future fiction

Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow! Our most radical imagination is under siege: Terrassa Solarpunk is an audacious and experimental laboratory, which aims to stimulate the speculation applied to the Lisbon context, generating multiple futures that are fair, local, inclusive and eco-sustainable. We will use the thematic approach of the Solarpunk, a new eco science fiction sub-genre and the methodologies offered by the field of future studies as tools for research and creation. The laboratory aims to offer a methodological preparation for change, to critically investigate the present and understand its tendencies: the weak signals of which manifolds possible futures.
On the other hand, Solarpunk artistic discourse will be understood and evaluated, new aesthetics will be built in relation to the creative practices and personal concerns of the participants.
Also an introduction to fictional design will be made: more speculative than a prototype, it represents a “narrative object” that can be used in a performative way, to reflect and narrate projected experiences into the future. Finally, the participants will be asked to create not a unique and utopian vision, but an archipelago of different futures, a landscape to expand the ability to imagine near future in autonomy, without getting caught up in preconstructed stories that indicate the future as unique and already defined.
