Utopia or Dystopia

Signals Festival 2021

15-16 October - Funkhaus, Berlin

Utopia or Dystopia

For 2021’s festival we explored if we are heading for a utopia or dystopia, and how art & technology can determine that direction. What does artistic expression look like in a sustainable community and what is our responsibility as artists to transform the wider social, political & industrial landscapes?
