ABGESAGT - BEYOND DYSTOPIA. hopeful and catastrophic futures of public spaces & cities

11. Nov - 01. Feb
Free entry
How a globalized and mobile generation, travelling to different countries to gather experiences and inspiration, imagine the urban future? BEYOND DYSTOPIA is an open discourse of hopeful and catastrophic futures. While this look into the future might serve as a motivation to change the ways we operate day to day, it also questions the dominant trends and creates strategies to move forward. As Richard A.Slaughter (1998) put it: “The speculative imagination is a higher-order human capacity that can productively explore the not-here and the not-yet. To some extent it is already doing so. But these explorations are limited by prevailing cultural assumptions. (...) there are other arenas to explore that, were they taken seriously, could exert sufficient symbolic ‘pull’ to qualify as desirable images of futures. They could then begin to act as ‘magnets’ for the realisation of possibilities that are presently obscured.” Artists: Linda Steiner, Käthe Löffelmann, Mariella Lehner, Moiz, Colin Linde, HNRX, David Leitner, NDZW, JAKOB der Bruder, Golif, Vunik, FATI Curated by: AG18 & Improper Walls .
