We Are in the Future In The Future They Ate From the Finest Porcelain

Larissa Sansour presented a new way to consciously modify the history of the future by depositing Porcelain on earth that reveals the civilization's past from archeology. The Afrofuturism movements imagine the potential for black people to be on stage in the future. These two thinking about the future were both heavily impacted by the past: for Larissa Sansour, it is the dead sister and for the Afrofuturism, it was the Atlantic slave trade. Future becomes not only the psychological harbor but also a projected way to celebrate the uncelebrated present - to fix all the issues in the present. We can see for those conceptual artworks, the future is always linked with history or the present.
