”The future is over”, claims Franco ”Bifo” Berardi in After the Future. He doesn’t mean that time has stopped, but that the construction of horizons of expectation, which has characterised the Western modernity, has ended. A historical-philosophical semantics (cf. Historian Reinhart Koselleck), where the reading of history opens for utopian prophecies, is not sufficient, when History ends. Museum for the Future examines this collapse in historical-philosophical thinking in the shadow of the developments that challenge our perception of time right now – climate crises, globalization, technological acceleration – by exhibiting the interpretations of research-based visions of the future as museological. In the theater and in the art center without a collection the future will be staged as the past.
