Italian critic and media activist Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi has proclaimed that the era of the post-future has begun. The future can no longer fulfill the promise of the past. This has left us with the feeling of a future that has already transpired. The question today is what will stand in its place. Manifesto’s, no matter how critical, abstract or subversive, sets out to pin point a specific moment in time and it’s vision for a future to come. But if our current perception of time is one wherein the future has already passed, why make manifestos for the future at all?
