About this Event

Revolution can’t take its poetry from the past – but only from the future.

On 14th May, at EartH Hackney, join philosopher and activist Srećko Horvat in conversation with the experimentalist, activist and artist Brian Eno, to discuss Horvat's new book Poetry From the Future.

Is a global liberation movement the only way to save humanity? Poetry From the Future draws on myriad sources from contemporary culture, historical archives and stories of resistance from Horvat's own island in Croatia, as well as the partisan liberation movements of Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia, refugee camps and political frontlines of 21st century Europe, to argue that we need to move beyond borders, national identities and the redundant narratives of the past.

What is the role of the arts in how we understand politics or history? How can hidden narratives be brought to light? Are we as free as we like to think? How does film, documentary, art or music help us to see the world anew and how important is that now? Faced with our last chance, we urgently need a radical new vision for civilisation. Join us for an unmissable evening of debate, provocation and conversation, chaired by Rosie Boycott.

‘Infused with a contagious enthusiasm and optimism that never ignores the grim reality of our present, Poetry from the Future is a radical call for action.’ Alfonso Cuarón

‘A compelling vision, an urgent necessity, and not beyond reach.’ Noam Chomsky
