FUTURE M is about migration and arrival: How do you arrive in a new place? It is work to make a new place your own, a problem that millions of people are solving on a daily basis. How? Kaethe Wenzel interviews people about their long or short way to their current home, listening and drawing. Future M combines drawing, interviews, street art, and the internet. Sketches developed during the interviews become animated drawings for an internet-based map. Future M is an ongoing global project - collecting a many-voiced panorama of perspectives and individual methods of arriving.
