Students of the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague respond to the exhibition ‘A Fair Share of Utopia’ in which they reflect on the question: “If you were to die today and return one generation later, in what world would you want to be born, no matter where or who you are”. This question can be found in the essay ‘What if We’re All Coming Back?’ by human rights lawyer Michelle Alexander, published in The New York Times in October 2018.
From the thought experiment of imagining a fundamentally different, sustainable and humane organisation of society, the students speculate about an unknown future of which they themselves are part. In this trajectory they are coached by Müge Yilmaz (visual artist), Petra Ardai (theatre maker), Jörgen Gario (poet and musician) and Heske ten Cate (artistic director Nest) and Daphne Verberg (programme coordinator).
Extra at 7-7.30 PM: live interview at Instagram with Heske Ten Cate and the artists of the expo Some World Futures in Nest. @Hoogtijdenhaag
