“In the move towards what does not yet exist, utopia takes on a renewed attraction. In a review of the changing historical faces of utopia the british literary scholar Ruth Levitas points out that the defining feature of utopia is not stylistic markers or motifs, but an impulse; the desire for a better way of living or being. And it is this impulse that is once more motivating artists to explore the potential that utopia could have today, beyond both the universal ideological solutions of modernism and post modernism’s assault on the grande narrative”. Marie Lauberg (Utopia & Contemporary Art, Hatje Cantz/ Arken)
Indeed, it is the grande narrative that need be altered, via public perception at large. As artists, through our very production, it can be our duty to act as catalysts to such change.
