Inspired by Britain’s decision to depart from the EU during our last edition, and referencing EIFFs historical achievements throughout, The Future is History turns the clock back to the 1970s and 1980s to explore the vital question of identity in a world undergoing seismic political and cultural change.

The programme consists of three central strands, all featuring art from the same era, and each designed to focus thought on one of three identities, Great Britain, Scotland, and the Western World of the Future.
