Future Archive is a bespoke publication and exhibition that gathers artworks, texts, and conversations from the Future Archive artistic research laboratory, led by artist Rut Blees Luxemburg. Future Archive focusses on the four year long 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 with 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.
