IS the present the future you had imagined years ago?
This is just one of the points to ponder while attending the Future Africa Visions in Time (FAVT) exhibition, which is a collaboration between the Bayreuth Academy of Advanced African Studies, Iwalewahaus (University of Bayreuth) and the Goethe-Institut Namibia.
The idea that one’s past plays a major role in how one perceives the future, is the vision behind this exhibition, and was implemented through the concept of art and fiction.
Among the other questions, which visitors to the exhibition, which runs until 27 March at the Goethe-Institut, will be confronted with, are: How does the flipside of life or sense of identity and belonging shape the challenges and visions of the future today? In which ways does the past resonate into the future? Does a troubled past act as an impediment on how we anticipate our future?
In the attempt to fully grasp the concept, and understand the idea behind this phenomenal exhibition, it requires one to do some in-depth self-investigation.
