The Future Architecture Library is an open digital platform made to promote editorial production and cooperation activities between FA platform members. Throughout the coming 2021 cycle, the activities of the FA library will support the work of 23 emergent creatives and will include two publications, one co-production, and a virtual book fair:
Publication – Landscapes of Care
Following the space of debate we opened at Future Architecture Rooms, for this cycle, our first publication will constitute a meaningful discussion about the inclusiveness of FA’s cultural activities and how the projects submitted by emergent creatives reflect the diversity of the EU in particular and the world in general.
For this purpose, we will give in the role of editors to new voices coming from emerging creatives. We will rely on the FA Open Call to encourage applications of editors from under-represented groups in the landscape of critical thinking (Black, Latino, Asian, LGBT ). The editor(s) will have the task of critically reflecting on the nature of FA’s cultural projects and the work of 14 selected emergent creatives from the FA Open Call, under the optics of transversality and inclusiveness in times of pandemic challenges, politically promoted polarisation and emerging far-right rethorics. Taking care of multiculturalism is key to strengthening cohesive and reflective communities, to foster conviviality through dialogue, and to promoting social inclusion for all people, regardless of their background.
In this EU scenario, Landscapes of Care will constitute a self-reflective work of Future Architecture’s actions towards inclusive contemporary societies.
