Summary
What happens when we create a space in which futures are imagined from a Muslim
positionality? When we center anti- and interdisciplinary artistic and cultural perspectives and
allow for sensuality in imagination processes? How do these futures look, sound and feel like?

Conference

In this panel we will discuss what Muslim European Futurism is, can be as well as compare its understanding of futuring to other approaches. Moreover, we want to shed light on to what extend sensuality can and needs to be part of empowering futuring practices. By introducing the works of selected Muslim Futurists, we will look at some practical insights of their approaches and enter into a constructive and critical exchange with other European Futurists.
