PALA Talk: Utopian Union
01.08.2018 7pm - 9pm
Within the public program of PALA Lab – Collective Affairs, a laboratory for collaborative and participatory artistic practices initiated and curated by Zona Dynamic / Vincent Chomaz & Eliza Goldox, SomoS hosts and artist talk with Utopian Union (Berlin).
The talk will focus on the Utopian Union offspring project ‘2031’ led by Ana Gzirishvili and Sara Løve Daðadóttir. It envisions the year 2031, investigating scenarios of utopian ideas using LARP (live-action roleplay) as a methodology, and inviting academics, artists, designers, social entrepreneurs, scientists, students, activists and others who share a desire for new perspectives and utopias to participate. The talk will present the three first chapters of the series ‘2031’ developed respectively for The Micro Utopia Workshop in Denmark (2016), Cycle Art & Music Festival (2017) and Screen City Biennial (2017).
Utopian Union, founded in Berlin in 2015, is a collective focused on non-institutional learning, interdisciplinary collaboration and artistic practice. Utopian Union uses art as a space for the imaginary, where new aesthetics, cultural movements and models can be developed.
