About We Know Not What We May Be

A collaborative and immersive experiment for the invention of the future, We Know Not What We May Be invites you to ‘rehearse’ possible tomorrows. From AI and robotics to responses to climate change, this performance installation takes big ideas and puts people at the heart of the decision-making process. Join artistic collaborators from METIS, led by director Zoë Svendsen, alongside expert speakers from economics, geography and environmental science as they outline potential scenarios to co-imagine a collective vision. Book for either a utopian or dystopian approach and explore first-hand these alternative futures from the delightful to the terrifying. Presented by the Barbican as part of our 2018 Season, The Art of Change, which explores how artists respond to, reflect and can potentially effect change in the social and political landscape.
