Thinking beyond tanks – how your ideology shapes the future
Our contemporary political landscape as well as public debate is increasingly dominated by extreme positions. Opinions and assumptions are echoed through (social) media, loose their connection to reality and transform into collective imaginations of more or less homogeneous peer groups. All those groups have their own values, a canon of guiding principles, their specific ingroup language and a common externalized enemy.
Over the course of the semester, every participant will develop a fictional future scenario based on current real-world ideologies. We will then discuss the implications of those utopian or dystopian visions for our current situation and use these insights for the development of critical artworks. The concept of this course is experimental and will be further developed together with the participants.
