Feminist Futures is an ongoing participatory art project that initiates, creates and archives science
fiction stories of a feminist internet. In workshops, talks and exhibitions imagination and narration
serve as tools for public engagement in technological processes. Feminist Futures maps current issues on
the internet and re-imagines them through stories, comics or poems. Fiction, in this context, becomes a
cultural communal practice that enables political action by re-writing and co-creating feminist futures.
Today, in the year 2038, we have mastered the great crises. It was close, but we made it. The global
economic and ecological disasters of the 2020s brought people, states, institutions and companies
together. [...] Technologies and big data helped us to turn new and old ideas into reality. [...] Drama
is now history. We live in a radical democracy, in a radical bureaucracy. On a planet that doesn't know
or need heroes or villains.
2038 is an international team of architects, artists, ecologists, economists, scientists, politicians
and writers, initiated in 2019, with the goal of reveling a (hi)story that today we call future.
Effi Beißt was an agency of six people that consulted the German news-blog netzpolitik.org on strategies
for (online-)journalism and narrations for donation-based business models. We created videos, wrote a
magazine, produced merch, and did a lot of qualitative and quantitative research.
