Unreadable Future

Screening und talk

The Harun Farocki Institute presents UNREADABLE FUTURE, an essay film by artist, curator and writer Hans Carlsson, realised as part of his Harun Farocki Residency in Berlin in winter 2021/22 - supported by the International Artists Studio Program in Stockholm (IASPIS).
In the format of a video letter to a future in which all phonetic letter systems (including the Latin alphabet) no longer exist, the narrator, while presenting material from various sources on his desktop screen, asks questions about the power of alphabetic representation, the history of the Greek alphabet and the taxonomy of Atlantic hurricanes.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with Hans Carlsson, Sarat Maharaj and Doreen Mende.

The event will be held in English.
