‘At a moment when dominant conceptual and economic frameworks (capitalism, nationalism, and the prison industrial complex) from the global north are collapsing under their own weight, Future Souths inspires us to discard familiar geographical and temporal vocabularies. Essays and dialogues among artists, scholars, and activists offer alternative models for new conceptual pathways, evaluate the productivity of “weak” histories, offer methods for politically resistant collectives, and insightfully insist that we begin to properly imagine spaces of justice and equality.’ Jennifer A. Gonzalez

Future Souths offers important new and old ways to think about multiple directionalities of influence, politics and placement that reorganise the cartographies of knowledge as a feminist and dialogic practice. The book breaks open the understanding of thinking as a monocultural and unidirectional affair and instead invites us into a world of dyads, trios, cosmologies, and interrelations, thereby obliterating the distinction between art and politics as separate worlds.’  Macarena Gómez-Barris
