From a Future Pasts storytelling event held near Namibia's highest mountain - the Brandberg or Dâures.

A Damara / ≠Nūkhoen woman walks through the landscape at Sorris-Sorris, west Namibia. Her voluminous dress echoes those worn by European missionaries in the 1800s, signalling the complex and hybrid histories enacted in this arid African land


The Future Pasts research project welcomes you to an exhibition hosted by Bath Spa University in connection with our Research Centre in Environmental Humanities.

The exhibition brings together images, music and video installations made in collaboration with people and organisations in west Namibia. It will be a contemplative space where the themes of sustainability, identity and displacement weaving through our research are evoked in registers beyond academic critique.

For those of you in far-off places, please come and visit the virtual version of the exhibition on the Future Pasts website.

If you are in Namibia, from 2018 the exhibition will be reconvening in Windhoek and beyond...
