Publication “BEWARE, UTOPIA!”

This book contains a compilation of scientific and artistic contributions from the Cultural Typhoon in Europe (CTE), which took place in Nuremberg in autumn 2017. The title “BEWARE, UTOPIA!” was already a program at that time and was conceptually developed in the present publication. Based on a foreword, the contributions are divided into three chapters: “I. HETEROTOPIAS,” “II. UTOPIAN IMAGINATIONS,” and “III. UTOPIAN DESIRE,” each accompanied by a brief introduction.

With the “ACHTUNG UTOPIE!” workshop on September 20 and 21, 2020, the Institute for Applied Heterotopia provided a creative space in which participants could explore central questions of their individual desires and visions for the Dragonerareal up to the year 2040.
