This chapter speculates on the future of contemporary anthropological ‘installations’ by reappropriating the very term ‘installation’ beyond its traditional home in the art world. Such reappropriation — indeed theft — invites the reader to sense the incurable-image as a form of life that harbors and struggles with a futurist mode of care. This symptomatology enables a renewed encounter between the conceptual personae composing this book's assemblage — curator, anthropologist, artist. The personae they repeat are ‘not just a matter of diagnosis. Signs imply ways of living, possibilities of existence, they're the symptoms of life gushing forth and draining away’. Ultimately, these incurable-images and iterative assemblages begin to release untimely futures in which the artists, anthropologists, and curators use inter-media experimentation as part of a demanding ethics of immanence to endure our states of curation.
