Utopian Institute (UI) is an installation project that turns the urban
space into a space for social and artistic interaction.|
How can „utopia“ be conceived today - in a very subjective sense?
The UI occupies niches and empty lots in the city, with the aim to col-
lect and discuss personal answers to this question.
2010, the nomadic installation has been traveling to various places in
Germany and Europe - like Leipzig, Weimar, Skopje and Hamburg.
The UI always relates to the speci-
and cultural context of the place. Everywhere the
„institute“ is installed, its is built up anew in
reference to the architecture and environment.
The UI houses a
library with literature on utopian ideas and practices, and
it offers visitors a research micro-desk and a working place.
The UI wants to establish a commu-
nication platform where knowledge can be shared, ideas be developed and utopian concepts be discussed in public.
