Z33 presents new book 'Studio Time: Future Thinking in Art and Design'

The new publication 'Studio Time: Future Thinking in Art and Design' approaches questions of future fictions, literacy and ethics with essays of international design and art thinkers and a selection of art,design and architecture projects. 

Reflections on future fictions, literacy and ethics

Rapid economical, environmental and political changes and technological developments have made predicting and preparing to the future ever more challenging. Simultaneously, envisioning futures has become ever more relevant in terms of being able to respond to the future needs. What is the future world we are heading to? Who is to decide what kind of a future we are approaching? What and why should creative practitioners contribute to the field of future thinking? What is the relevancy of art or design practices in imagining possible futures?


The publication Studio Time – Future Thinking in Art and Design approaches questions of future fictions, future literacy and future ethics with essays of prominent, international design and art thinkers, reflective shorter essays and a selection of art, design and architecture projects. The book is a closing chapter of Studio Future, which is one of the research studios developed by Z33 - House for contemporary art in Hasselt (Belgium).
