The project financed by the Junior Host Program of the Dahlem Humanities Center of the Free University Berlin, is designed as a comparative study of Italian Futurism as avantgardistic movement on the one side and African-francophone imaginations of the future: ‘Afro-becoming’ (‘Afro-devenirs’) on the other side. It sets out to discuss the meaning and place of Africa in the futurist work of F. T. Marinetti and in the literary production of afro-devenirs writers. Through the comparative approach, it provides a theoretical discussion on concepts such as ‘Technology’, ‘Community’ and ‘Temporality’.
