<nettime-ann> At Intermediæ Madrid: UTOPÍAS: artists and thinkers explore alternative realities at Intermediæ

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 de Kerckhove.

/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.
