What is a potential of utopias? What if we try to understand utopias not just as impossible scenarios detached from reality, but rather as a tool of a possible change-making in the field? For this session, we will set up a temporary collective working in four directions, searching for strategies on how to design utopias and bring them back to the earth of our practices. We will start with a common point, split into smaller groups, facilitated by speculative design experts and strangers, and eventually come back together and materialise our knowledge in a zine, which will be printed and distributed within our community.
This is an all-day program with one break and we recommend to stay the whole session to experience it fully.
