SEVEN EXERCISES IN PRACTICAL UTOPIA
OCTOBER 14 - 21.
Seven Exercises in Practical Utopia is a weeklong event that explores "Utopia" as an intellectual concept linking the fantastical and the pragmatic in order to bring about social, political and artistic change. During this week-long event artists and participants will test the usefulness of the concept of “Practical Utopia” when it is applied to daily life through a series of exercises, prompts, and gatherings. The exercises will offer participants new possibilities outside of normal routine that will encourage the development of new relationships, and present the opportunity to understand people, the city, and civic life from a new perspective, transforming everyday life into a new source of inspiration. This week is the result of an ongoing collaboration between Culture Push, and the Helsinki/Berlin-based collective, YKON.
Participating Artists include:
Walis Johnson (Spring 2017 Fellow)
