We borrowed the theme for our tenth issue from the title of the book penned by futurist writer Alvin Toffler in 1970, in which he claims that ‘the future arrives too soon and in the wrong order’. Summing up the term ‘Future Shock’ in a 1973 Alex Grasshoff documentary of the same name, narrator Orson Welles explains: We were never going to be prepared, but it seems as though, as of 2020, we’re embarking on our journey into the future defeated. We devoted this issue to understanding, seeing and discussing the effects, triggers and aftermath of this shock. Without giving up on our dreams, we set our sights on topics we can’t ignore.
