Ghana ThinkTank Contributes to New Book “Wat Niet Is”

Imagining the world a generation from now.

Ghana ThinkTank is an artist contributor in a new book, Wat Niet Is (What Is Not).

“If you were to die today and return one generation later, what world would you like to be born into, no matter where or who you are?”

Based on this thought experiment, ten writers and nine artists explore the possibility of putting their own interests aside for a better world for future generations. They speculate about an unknown future of which they themselves are a part. The national and international writers and artists reflect from different backgrounds and perspectives on current global issues and express their own voices.

Essayists include author, legal scholar, and civil rights advocate Michelle Alexander.

Other essays by: René ten Bos, Dean Bowen, Sander Donkers, Clarice Gargard, Sisonke Msimang, Rashid Novaire, Vamba Sherif, Jan van de Venis and Louwrien Wijers.

Artist contributions from: Brook Andrew, Raul Balai, Ghana ThinkTank, Claudia Martínez Garay, Femke Herregraven, Nástio Mosquito, Simphiwe Ndzube, Marianne Nicolson and Müge Yilmaz.

The book is an initiative of Nest in collaboration with Mister Motley and Manon Braat and is published by publisher Jurgen Maas.
