Which roles can art projects, art spaces, self organized academies and labs play in developing conceptions of the world that go beyond purely economic globalization? Projects from various parts of the world propose and test other realities of life and world views—from small artistic gestures to social experimentation. ‘Other Possible Worlds – Proposals on this Side of Utopia’ is conceived as an ongoing pool for varied formats. Topics such as dealing with cultural differences, economic and ecological changes, processes of leveling and confusing complexities form the basis for a common space in which to raise questions. The publication is intended as a workbook that links ideas, concepts, models, terms, projects, kits and forms of action as approaches and perspectives for further projects in other parts of the world.
