UTOPÍAS: artists and thinkers explore alternative realities at Intermediæ*
On Tuesday, 11 September, the UTOPIAS Project begins at INTERMEDIÆ
Matadero Madrid. It will last from September to December 2007.
/Utopías /brings together thinkers and artists from different creative
fields to work on Utopian themes and new ways of reinterpreting reality.
The project will begin by creating a map of current reality through the
presentations, lectures, debates, and encounters scheduled in September.
This analysis will be approached from disciplines including economics,
science, art, philosophy, and sociology, through reflections on today's
world order by: David Casacuberta, Ramón Fernández Durán, Néstor García
Canclini, Brian Holmes, Charity Scribner, Antonio Lafuente, and Derrick
/Utopías/ takes as its starting point the vision offered by a variety of
specialists on real scenarios and the presentation of their works by
creators Natalie Bookchin, Santiago Cirugeda, Clara Boj and Diego Díaz,
the Luis o Miguel collective, and Nils Norman. They all have a
perspective that reinterprets habitual ways of perceiving the world and
fabulates imaginary-- or even possible—conditions, building other senses
within contemporary societies.
In September, the search for common interests and an on-going dialogue
get underway, as different approaches to building other, Utopian
realities are explored through projects that will gradually be defined.
