More than 100 utopie camps will come together from August 24th to 25th throughout the German republic to explore tomorrow’s prosperity and wellbeing. The camps are part of the utopia conference of the Leuphana University of Lüneburg, initiated by the transformation researcher Maja Göpel and the philosopher Richard David Precht.
Our utopie camp will build on common visioning. As films about futures are usually dystopias, we will explore how the expertise of art and film can help to visualize positive futures. In the ArtForFuture-Lab, we’ll work out how a utopian world can look like.
Join us at Filmuniversity Babelsberg!
The ArtForFuture-Lab is developing an international online future museum that interactively and co-creatively takes on the challenges of the 21st century. Due to the complex socio-economic, cultural and ecological issues, strong images and value-based visions are required in order to be able to steer towards positive, sustainable futures. 🌱💚
AFFL uses methods that have been modified from world-building, design-thinking, re-gnosis and future prototyping. Based on an interdisciplinary and scenographically designed online play area, scenes for the year 2050 are developed. Extensively researched archives provide knowledge of already existing solutions as well as dramaturgical inspiration for acting characters and scouted locations. These are based on utopias such as the “Technotransformation World” (relies on solutions through technological progress) and the “New Greening World” (relies on natural life and product concepts such as bioeconomy or a circular society). ♻️
We invite all experts and organizations that care for a socio-ecological transformation and facilitate collaboration between disciplines and communities to create synergy and broaden the scope and impact of ideas. Let us exchange visions on possible and hopeful futures and what could be changed together.
24 and 25 August 2021, 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
