What Now? On Future Identities examines the notions of 'future identities', through discussions around the construction of the self, queer theory, self-determination, mutability, the body, technology and social media, as well as the ever-evolving relationship between the digital and the material.

Bringing together contributions from artists, curators, educators, cultural theorists and psychologists, alongside artists' interventions, What Now? On Future Identities is the second in a series of publications that coincide with a symposium of the same name, held by Art in General, New York. The book considers how contemporary political movements differ from the kinds of activism that arose around identity politics during the 1960s through to the 1990s, and how new thinking might shape ideas around 'performing citizenship' or creating a new sense of commons in the future.

What Now? On Future Identities follows the first book in Black Dog Publishing's series with Art in General, What Now? The Politics of Listening. The series is ongoing with another title to be published next season.
