In a time where the quest for a new political ecology is at the forefront of public discourse, Tomorrows/ Today 2024 turns into a platform where 12 emerging and underrepresented artists, with diverse aesthetic practices and geo-cultural backgrounds, rethink our connection with the non-human world. Through personal mythologies founded in post-humanist approaches, queer ecologies or speculative recovering of pre-colonial knowledge, they offer alternative narratives for dwelling both in the outer world and the inner realms of the body and mind. This panel brings together the curator of the program, Mariella Franzoni, alongside some of the participating artists: Natalie Paneng, Lindokuhle Sobekwa, Cinthia Sifa Mulanga, Marlene Steyn, Boemo Diale. Together, they will delve into the artists' projects conceived for Cape Town, exploring how these practices contribute to the ongoing dialogue about our relationship not only with the environment but with ourselves, our past and future.
