Post-Museum proposed an intervention in the Kultur Symposium through inserting an Archive of Future Commons pencil+eraser into the symposium tote bag. The pencil+eraser provides an ideological tool which suggesting the gesture of ‘changing’ our future and ‘re-writing’ it. It is a way for the Archive of Future Commons dialogue to be ‘inserted’ into the discourse of the symposium.
