Future Archive is a new publication which gathers artworks, texts, conversations and exhibitions from the Future Archive artistic research laboratory, initiated and led by artist and RCA Senior Research Fellow, Rut Blees Luxemburg.
The Future Archive book documents the work of the artistic research laboratory who used the construction site of the RCA’s new Battersea campus, designed by architects Herzog & de Meuron, as an opportunity for field study. The book is a culmination of their work over the four-year construction – representing a diverse range of artworks by RCA staff, students and recent alumni including paintings, photographs, billboards, performances, sculptures and video, as well as exhibitions and publications.
Structured into three main sections – Memory, Construction and Proposal – the book goes beyond the conventional archive, in looking to the future of how the Battersea campus may be inhabited by students.
