transmediale.04: fly utopia!
Conference   //   jan.31 -- feb.04 .2004
Exhibition   //   jan.31 -- feb.15 .2004

transmediale.04 explores the utopian potential of contemporary art practice in the field of digital culture. the festival focuses on art made by means of digital technologies, and on art that reflects on the social, cultural and aesthetic dimensions of new technologies. tm.04 tests the utopias associated with these technologies and explores artistic responses to the utopias and dystopias of the information age. The festival remains suspended between the promise of hope, and the resignation that there is no hope. Fly Utopia! is thus both a call for justified optimism, and a call for overcoming pessimism in the face of contemporary utopias, or the absence thereof.

The Fly Utopia! exhibition opens January 31st and continues beyond the festival until February 15th. The exhibition gathers utopian and dystopian designs of economic concepts in the Fly Utopia! market. Other projects articulate positions on lost social utopia and present ideas for a better and a different future.
