The Blossoming: Speculative Futures for a Post-Pandemic World / July 2020
In 2020, the world changed. Racial injustice, economic disaster, and a global pandemic shook the Earth beneath us. At this moment of profound disruption, a group of artists and thinkers came together at CoLab to envision a post-pandemic world. This live session captures their vision of a future that is more just; more humane.
This collaboration recognizes speculative fiction as a critical tool of urban planning. In order to bring about different, more just futures, we must expand our methods. After all:
“The master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house.”
