Future Host (Tingying Ma and Kang Kang)

Born in dreamworlds and catastrophe, Future Host (Tingying Ma and Kang Kang) is an artist duo in search of alternative forms of subsistence and resistance. They consider the world as emotive and sentient and something that can only be processed through epistemic inquiries. Espousing the perspective of post-socialist realist emotional mismanagement, they write and make performances with readiness and ecstasy.

"You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive."
