Abstract or Description

Patrick Keiller has remarked that we now live in futurism's future, that future, which, from the historical avant-garde to last mid-century's space age, aspired to the radically new.

Moreover, things are not so very different after all. This is not unrelated to another meta-historical comment made recently, Fredric Jameson's claim that today it is easier to imagine the end of the world than it is to imagine the end of capitalism.1 Dystopic science-fiction scenarios notwithstanding, we find ourselves living in a future without a future, in a future that is already the past, living on a map of the world where that place called utopia has, for this modern memory at least, never been so out of sight.
