This year, Forum of the Future presents a series of debates and performances aiming at questioning cultural and territorial occupation processes throughout the centuries, and also today, resorting to different perspectives and practices. The 2019 edition draws inspiration from the symbolism inherent to the fact that this year marks the 500th anniversary of the first circumnavigation of the globe by Ferdinand Magellan, which some forums celebrate. Forum of the Future will thus focus on contemporary reflexion modes around systems of domination and liberation of peoples and other beings in the planet, whose existence faces submission to human strength in manifold natural settings, and for which some are already claiming a legal status. This year, the Forum of the Future programme is based and built upon the notions of otherness, appropriation and extraction by a wide range of curators with distinct research practices and cultural output. Violence, subjugation, love and solidarity distinguish a programme that brings us one of the most dominant and disturbing topics of our time, which is at the centre of the main fights mankind (and Portugal) is — or should be — waging.
