Screening room

forms of the surrounding futures: screening brings artworks from GIBCA 2023 into schools, homes and phones around Sweden. The platform features film works selected from the exhibition presentation of  forms of the surrounding futures in Göteborg and reframes them online as entry points, questions and approaches to thinking differently about the futures you want to dwell in.  

The platform included a reel of films selected by GIBCA 2023 curator João Laia, available for all to view, along with a prompt sheet offering some questions to consider whilst watching the films. Alongside this is a resource exclusively for pedagogues, featuring three individual films accompanied by lesson plans suited for students from the age of 15 years.  

forms of the surrounding future: screening is a project supported by the Swedish Film Institute.
