Rahel Aima re: Gulf futurism (aka Khaleeji futurism)

Over at Current Intelligence they recently published an interview of Rahel Aima by Scott Smith. The interview Ethnic Futurism in the Gulf, discusses “ethnifuturisms, technomagicality and weirdness”.

Mr. Smith concludes “As the Gulf, the BRICs, emerging markets, and the Global South in general take on a more defining role in the next century, from economic and political policy to design and culture, the Western/Northern themes that have so defined our discourse about the future will be more displaced than added to by emerging ethnifutures, providing a broad canvas on which these regions’ aspirations and fears will be projected“.
