In this first event we will discuss contemporary notions of utopia starting from nine texts presented in the Utopian Library. Participants become envoys from the different utopian places, coming together in a sort of general assembly.
The discussion will be followed by a screening of John Jordans and Isabelle Frémeaux’ film Paths Through Utopias (2011). Blurring the fluid boundaries between present and future, documentary and fiction, this is a road movie exploring a postcapitalist Europe and different utopian and activist communities within it.
