‘If you would die today and reincarnate one generation later, in what world would you want to be born, regardless of where or who you are?’ This is the question posed to the artists of ‘A Fair Share of Utopia’ and inspired them to create new works for Nest and CBK Zuidoost.
The exhibition ‘A Fair Share of Utopia’ is accompanied by the publication ‘Wat Niet Is Maar Kan Zijn’, in which ten writers and nine artists speculate about an unknown future of which they themselves are part.
