Other Possible Worlds – Proposals on this Side of Utopia
Workshop


Other Possible Worlds aims at opening a space for multiple projects suggesting and testing other realities of life and other 'Weltvorstellungen' (world visions) from small-scale artistic tryouts to larger social experiments.
It questions the role of art projects, art spaces and self-organised academies and labs in imagining a world beyond a purely economic globalisation. The globe is the common denominator, an international shared communal space of reference. Cultural differences, economic and ecological changes and processes of levelling are urgent global issues the workshop will deal with.

The subject of the Art Workshop 2011 refers to the potentialities of art as described by Sarat Maharaj. He points out that art does not only mean transmitting knowledge pre-established by the institutional discourse of systematic disciplines, but that art produces knowledge normal reasoning has difficulties to deal with.

In the course of the workshop an 'Other Possible Worlds – Dictionary' will be worked out as well as further material brought in by the participants as cosmos of terminologies and fields of references. Each artist will select and examine what s/he considers to be interesting, useful or meaningful. With this collection of ideas, concepts, models, terms, projects, kits and modes of acting, the participating artists will strive to create outlines for other possible worlds.
