Abstract or Description:

Future Archive brings together artworks, texts, and conversations from the Future Archive artistic research laboratory, led by artist Rut Blees Luxemburg. Future Archive focusses on the four-year construction process of the RCA’s new Battersea campus, designed by architects Herzog & de Meuron opening in 2022.

Future Archive explores the construction site in Battersea as a location for field-study, generating diverse artworks including paintings, photographs and billboards; performances, sculptures, videos and publications. The opportunity to work on a construction site provided the artists a productive conduit for exploring urban transformation, memory and the active construction of a future archive. The representation of labour and masculinity; data and ethics; visualisation and material experimentation were key questions of artistic enquiry.
