Residency: 3 July – 26 July 2017 Exhibition: 27 July – 29 July 2017
Following Paris in 2015 and London in 2016, the third edition of the Zone d’Utopie Temporaire (Z.U.T.) summer residency programme has taken place in Athens this July 2017. The residency stands as an ongoing social and creative experiment whereby a group of selected artists work together during four weeks to create a Temporary Utopian Zone.
The group worked with guest speakers Stella Dimitrakopoulou, Ivan Masteropoulos, Dimitri Mpoukis, Giorgos Kontis, Jari Palta, Filoktitis Veinoglou, which has enabled ‘Utopia’ to be examined through different but complementary angles including philosophy, theology, biology and gender studies. Alongside the multiple theoretical talks, participants have organized two public events in order to open up the discussion to local communities through open studios and food experimentation.
A series of pocket Utopias is an exhibition presenting the outcome of this artistic collaboration across Yellow Brick and Snehta, where both sites have been transformed into a series of personal Utopian zones.
