October 13th - 15th, 2008 > opening at 19h

This project deals with themes of leaving and seeking for Utopian place. Introducing a motive of The Other utopia theme is artistically questioned in the context of West Europe towns that were artificially built during the “welfare state” period in the 1960s. At the same time, five-channel video installation experiments with film form by fragmenting the narrative and transmitting it into performance. The observer is put in an engaged position and asked to create her/his own story by choosing images or sounds. Youtopia was created during the artist’s residency in England 2007 awarded and funded by Arts Council of England and BIAW.
