With the brutal military invasion of Ukraine, the world changed 
overnight – this war cuts across all current and future issues for CEE 
that we wanted to address. Shocked and at the same time puzzled, we ask 
ourselves not only from our role as cultural creators or from art 
institutions: “What now? How can we imagine any kind of future? How can 
we talk about the future now? An online impulse lecture dealing with 
these questions forms the kick-off of the program series “Inquiries into 
the Future.”
Since ideas and projections of the future are all too often based on the 
same institutions and areas that caused the crises in the first place, 
artists, researchers, theorists, and activists will have their say in 
the series. who might be able to find a language to express the 
incomprehensible present, to comfort, to vent their own feelings and 
fears, and to imagine how to proceed from here and where to? What might 
possible/alternative futures look like after this war has influenced 
social, economic and ecological relationships and made it clear how 
intertwined they are?
