Rewriting the Future

In an age where wealth controls our systems of power and the world is ruled by patriarchal societies, feminist speculative perspectives can offer new insights, predictions and even possible alternatives.

Speculative and science fiction have always been spaces where futures are explored, questioned and proposed and, as with many disciplines, is an area where many creative and talented women, trans and queer perspectives have been overlooked. Feminist artists and writers have long been presenting new angles on gender, power, ecology and community and this exhibition explores some of those narratives.
