Re-imagining Utopia

Re-imagining Utopia


In 2018, Auroville will be celebrating its 50th anniversary. Although Auroville has a rich tradition of experimental architecture, and although Aurovilians keep emphasizing the importance of creative expression, it is still almost devoid of public or contemporary art. This spring, we organized a workshop with students at the Umeå Academy of Fine Arts to dream up possible interventions and proposals for public artworks in Auroville. Additionally, we asked artist friends to contribute works to the Re-imagining Utopia show as part of The Auroville Project, that reflect on the idea of a utopian community in the 21st century.
