Buckle Up: Time Travel as Radical Politics
The idea of time travel withstands the notion of time as a linear concept. Quantum mechanics theorizes time going backwards on the edges of black holes. It also shows time passing at different speeds depending on our own position or velocity. Futurities are thus not so different from the past, they must be thought together, simultaneously. In this experimental format we will jointly discuss and evolve the possibilities time travel, as a radical act of resistance, opens up by defying hegemonic notions of temporality.
