How can we get from complaining to doing? Can we design a future of solidarity with the aid of technology and how do we avoid transferring existing imbalances or discourses of rule and violence to the digital realms of action? Somewhere between art and activism, poetry and politics, we want to explore the capabilities of the explosive powers of collective creative processes and talk about how we can use our imagination to actively shape our everyday lives.

What possibilities do utopian-artistic designs offer to change social space? And where do utopias emerge that not only inspire the discourse, but also offer ideas for methods and strategies for social transformation and also what can we do to make these utopias visible and fruitful?
