Summary The World to Come is organized around overlapping trajectories, constituting a network of ecologies and stories within stories. The narrative traces states of being and becoming, from rupture, disaster and loss to the emergence of nonhierarchical alliances in human-non-human relations. It also explores the realms of justice, aesthetics, ethics, and the role of technology while considering the possibilities for a vibrant future. The stories in this essay are structured by seven intersecting themes of the exhibition: Raw Material, Consumption, Deluge, Extinction, Synthesis, Justice, and Imaginary Futures
