Sammanfattning

The space that is not ( u-topos ) could be the future that will be. A better future, for everyone on earth and also for our battered planet. In an era full of dark forebodings and visions, the future is no longer a matter of course (the apocalypse flows into every household at a flat rate) and optimism is a threatened attitude. We are forgetting that history is not a sure-fire success and fatalism is the coward's last refuge. It depends on us how we shape the future. Prerequisites for this are drafts and concepts that think into the unknown and the unknown, alternatives to the current system, which is known to claim to be without alternatives. Contrary to all dogmatic calls to doom in the media and digital spheres, visions of a different kind of society are by no means in short supply or nonexistent. On the contrary: they are diverse and abundant and at the same time mostly invisible, little known and therefore rarely popular. To change this, the literature this year will focus on concrete utopian thinking, as a creative and life-affirming answer to the destructive processes of an uncontrolled, exploitative capitalism. Based on the conviction that human progress is first sown in ideas before it merges into transformations, we have invited thinkers and activists, experts and gifted lay people, musicians and philosophers from seven European countries. In lectures and discussions, important topics such as grassroots democracy, universalism and cultural diversity, human rights and economy, aesthetics of the utopian as well as the beauty of resistance to the ruling line will be brushed under the symbolically towering pillars of the Odeon Theater. All lectures are documented and collected, because this is the start of a multi-year series of events under this name, in which as many citizens as possible should be addressed: a petrol station for alternative intellectual fuel, a collecting tank for everyone who knows deep down that it cannot go on as before and they are looking for real alternatives. We want this existentially important discourse between the 22nd and 25th Toast in Vienna in November. You are cordially invited to our utopian oasis!
