Futuristic nostalgia – open call

Futuristic nostalgia

You know it’s not the same as it was. And it never will again. Something’s coming. The change. Another shift in your life. New mornings, new rythms, no ideas to rely on.

Make space for the new you while digging into no longer existing spaces. We say good old days even when those were not that good. Maybe we were young, maybe things were different. Maybe there was Glitter in the sky, glitter my eyes or maybe – we were just too afraid to face the upcoming. Olden days, board games, chewing gums – childhood memories and tricky worlds that we used to believe in. And then – your kids that grew up. Buildings that are thorn down. City you no longer recognize. Your old desk and dreams that never came to life. Future that you paint with memories. Face the future, check what’s coming, use your nostalgia muscles to operate on unknown.

We’re looking for works related to nostalgia mindset, melancholic cityscapes that no longer exist, old regimes and futuristic nostalgia. We do not look for answers, we’re looking for poetic statements from different parts of the world.
