'Internationally celebrated curator Hans Ulrich Obrist is often asked about the future of art. His answer is always that we have to listen to artists. Since 2005, Obrist has expanded this narrative to ask not only artists but also writers, architects, mathematicians, scientists, poets, photographers, designers, novelists, professors, lawyers, actors, and philosophers to complete the sentence, “The future will be… ”, resulting in a range of different readings on what lies ahead. The first in a series of publications that includes Italy, Brazil and USA, the China edition of The future will be…is a collection of answers to Obrist’s question from protagonists working in China, and encourages readers to delve into the futuristic imaginings of a profoundly complex society.'
