“...It contained seven objects. The slender fluted bone, surely formed for flight, surely from the wing of some large bird. Three archaic circuitboards, faced with mazes of gold. A smooth white sphere of baked clay. An age-blackened fragment of lace. A fingerlength segment of what she assumed was bone from a human wrist, grayish white, inset smoothly with the silicon shaft of a small instrument that must once have ridden flush with the surface of the skin - but the thing’s face was seared and blackened.”
William Gibson, “Count Zero”, 1986

Beyond the bounds of the visual arts, this accompanying publication also examines approaches from architecture, theatre and design by means of examples. Alongside historical positions, the focus is placed in particular on contemporary, young artists, whose works has frequently been created in situations of radical change in Eastern Europe, Latin America and Asia. As well as texts on the exhibiting artists, the accompanying catalogue includes four academic essays that deal with the sociopolitical meaning of utopia through its historical development, the thematization and development of utopian models in art as well as the aesthetics of the small.
