AF develops and runs projects for finding, collecting, studying and creating images of the futures.
Our interdisciplinary projects combine creative, experimental, artistic and participatory approaches with futures research.

AF tackles the challenges of visual documentation, illustration and storytelling about futures.
The future is not an objective physical reality, available to visit for shooting footage. Our solution is to seek out subjective imagination in participatory projects. The tools for understanding what is at stake and what is possible come from the field of futures studies, communications theories, visual arts theory and practice, as well as all our conversation partners' everyday lives.

AF started as an experimental set-up and the small unit keeps adapting and evolving as technological, cultural, research and media landscapes themselves continue to change.


Summer and fall '22

Agence Future partners with the research group Open Time | Applied Futures Research where Maya is the senior researcher and UNESCO Chairholder in Images of the Futures and Co-creation. In this framework the AF team ensures participatory observation of media, arts and design projects in the international clusters of case studies. The joint project Poly-x that links these different clusters is an action research experimentation with polylogues for the cocreation of images of the futures. 
With Poly-X we will take part in the baraza of WAZA’s public program at Documenta in Kassel and Radicale’s Parade at Saint Cirq Lapopie. 
In the mean our mixed media workspace in Hoboken, Fulu Waterjacket is being developed for non-profit rental and residencies.
