Archeology of the future or a prospective past? Future II, or, as this tense is also called: future perfect is a paradoxical grammatical construction. Those who use this tense to make a statement about the world create facts that do not exist yet.

They describe the completion of an action in the future from a past perspective. This “will have done” downright runs past itself. However, future perfect is always highly uncertain. The linear progression of current conditions is one of the driving forces behind economic and technological developments. At the same time, there is a lack of visions for a better tomorrow, overshadowed by the desire to return to a better yesterday, which in fact never really existed. Entitled “Kunstraum Lakeside — Future Perfect”, the book summarizes the 2021 exhibition and performance program of Kunstraum Lakeside in Klagenfurt, Austria.
