Beyond the economic problem, the negativity of the current crisis is basically linked to the deactivation of the capacity of inventing a future. However, we must remind that every crisis opens up spaces of possibility. To assume that, as immaterial producers, we all participate in the creation of collective imagination entails the risk that neoliberal directives use as a tool the triad constituted by “innovation-creativity-invention.” In this inevitably shared space, critical artistic practices keep on defending the power of imagination as a political faculty that unite memory and prediction.
