From 2012 to 2017, “anti-utopias” has been a compelling thematic repository of artist portfolios and curated information from the international art scene. After more than five years of prolonged hiatus, the project is currently re-platformed as a conversational space featuring discussions with forward-thinking artists and cultural practitioners grappling with social, political, environmental, and extinction-level concerns.
An art conversations platform
The project initially featured mostly well-established and upcoming artists at the time, including Atelier Van Lieshout, Awoiska van der Molen, Benoit Aquin, Claudia Hart, Herwig Turk, Kjell Bjørgeengen, Kurt Hentschläger, Lang/Bauman, Marjolijn Dijkman, Katie Torn, Norimichi Hirakawa, Sophie Kahn, Susan Silas, or Wesley Meuris. The purpose of the new platform is to showcase reflective and critical projects that explore artistic practices amidst global challenges and the need for reformed imaginaries. We look at how artists inspire counter-gestures, counter-strategies, and counter-thinking while reflecting on the intersections between art and culture to devise new discursive and collaboration models that challenge social perceptions and an overly-technological society. “anti-utopias” is rooted in the belief that art holds power to rewrite the norms and create the conditions for new perceptions and relationships between subjects, objects, and experiences—and that artists are at the forefront of responsible social transformation. “anti-utopias” re-launches December 2023
