Larissa Sansour: In the Future They Ate From the Finest Porcelain

From war-weather continuum

This video work produced by artist Larissa Sansour in collaboration with Søren Lind narrates the visions of a figure who buries porcelain in the ground in order to present a fictional civilization to future archeologists. Her work urges viewers to consider the speculative futures of regions that have been subjected to warfare. While the landscape presented in the video is visually dystopic, it nevertheless builds on the political potentiality of futurism as a political stance.
