“A Vocabulary for the Future” is a collective essay about the world to come, a project of creating a dialogue between thinkers, writers, and local and international visual creators to imagine together an alternative and more hospitable future. The result is fourteen original audiovisual pieces created by the Thinking Biennale, shaping a kind of incipient cartography, a first map for exploring possible exits from this damaged present. Revolving around a particular word, each piece is a vanishing point, an open window, an invitation to think anew about the way we inhabit the world. CCCB
