UTOPIA IS NOT
A DESTINATION -
BUT A - DIRECTION
this statement origins from Steve Lambert's lecture at "Transmediale 10". He printed an unlimited series of "give what how much you can" posters, one of which i bought at a very interesting exhibition called "Enacting Populism" at Kadist Foundation Paris (currated by Matteo Lucchetti). It opened February, is still running and I had to at least go two times and not even this was enough.
Among his work in this really GREAT exhibition I also want to link to two other projects: "Simba, the last prince of Ba'ath Country" - a work about Syriah, social networks, political visual landscape, ... that kept me reading and digging for at least one hour and the video "Le President" by Alterazoni Video that I wont explain further ... I loved the way he played with the appropriation of subcultures in media-landscapes.
And "last but not least" a link to a short Video with Matteo Lucchetti talking about the Project "Enacting Populism".
