Futurescales - Antwerp

After 382 conversations about futures around the globe, we held 35 Agence Future interviews in Antwerp, where Maya grew up. MuHKA_media commisioned the montage. For narrative structure we used the same sections as applied in our interview schedule: evolving from personal, to local and then global futures, to finnish with a few bold questions for the imagination.

The port of Antwerp, promising to be a strong actor in the town's futures, was a setting for the opening sequence next to the new Court of Justice, the place most quoted by our conversation partners as "where we could catch a glimps of the future today". Social housing from the outskirts and the demolished old houses of the centre of town as well as the ambitious architectictural project of the new Museum Aan de Stroom, complete the picuture.
