Human beings have, throughout the ages, felt the urge to predict the future. In ancient times, oracles were consulted, people read in the bowels of sacrificial animals for prophecies, or looked into the constellation of stars up in the sky. For many decades in the past, the eccentric fortune teller Walter Mercado made prophecies about the future in popular tv appearances, nowadays innumerous astrology websites on the internet do the job.

In The Future, we will explore the future of the past and various theories of time, look at oracles and puzzles, and, following Karen Barad, sound out the possibility that the past might not has arrived yet. The future has, perhaps, gradually been abolishing itself, and all we’re left with is the endless and timeless reproduction of anachronisms.

It’s like you’re looking at scene set in a club in science-fiction movies: no matter when the film is produced, it’s always represented as a club in the 1980s with the doomsday clock showing five to twelve.

A storm is coming, says the man at the gas station. I know, I say, play Sarah Connor again.
