The Future of

The Future of—Nostalgia

This is the first edition of The Future of, a quarterly magazine, that seeks to reimagine, reclaim, and remap future potentialities of ideas that are shaping contemporary society. The aim of each edition is to deconstruct, recontextualise, and critically tackle notions that can be recuperated as valuable tools in developing a toolkit for a more livable, more just future. The first such idea that we seek to decipher is the convoluted concept of nostalgia. Our nostalgia is a doomed speculative tool that anticipates futures that never come. Our nostalgia is not our vulnerability, but our salvation and our antidote to a hyper-accelerated modernity. Our nostalgia is a nostalgia for the future: a radically new vision through which our relationship with time is reconfigured and in which a new temporal rhythm is proposed.
