Hugo Hutchins has recently published his debut book ‘Onedirectionfuturism’. It navigates themes of whiteness, heteronormativity, queerness and masculinity via a projection into a dystopian future where the boyband One Direction rule the world. The content of the book shifts between academic theory, fan fictions, illustrative images and personal self-reflections from the Author.
