UTOPIA de Nina Hoechtl

"During rambling through the neighbourhood Lavapiés, where I lived in Madrid, I’ve found this empty, disused space called UTOPIA.

As a “country of nowhere” utopia is mentioned in a dictionary. Nevertheless for this country exists endless concepts that are possible to differ of a plain impossibility, as Robert Musil argues, because one can dissolve a possibility of the contemporary, prevented complications and grant its development.
Beginning of 2006 I’ve decided to print 500 photopostcards, that were distributed in its neighbourhood and mailed to people attempting to trigger thoughts about utopia. This blog got created in 2007: All the received answers are presented and interested people can react on them and blog their own ideas." writes Nina Hoechtl about the project... and you can find more about it at esquina utopia
