> DESCRIPTION

Thom Donovan and Sreshta Rit Premnath of Museo magazine will interview artists about future projects that will never happen. The interviews will present futures which never came to pass, but may still hold the potential to be realized in the present. By producing an archive of futures which have yet to come to pass perhaps it is possible to alter the course of the future, as well as change the way we narrate and remember the past.

The tense of the future anterior (French: Future auxiliary verb + past participle) is one of potentiality. Within any given present, it images "what will have been" before an event actually comes to pass. To return to the moments of bifurcation is an objective of the archive of the future anterior. An archive which wishes to serve less as a time-capsule than a provisional index of loss or misplaced futures; where future has not yet become past and multiple futures remain compossible within a single present.
