31.5. - 15.6 Exibition
12.6. 20:30 Performative presentation

Imaginary worlds can serve as a productive way of coping with the current ecological crisis. Without carrying with them the paralyzing weight of pessimism, they provide productive insights into how our world can work differently and better. In our installation, we will step outside of the actual world and play with our own world. The installation will feature a video installation of six different visions of utopias, created by six members of Artbiom in collaboration with artificial intelligence. Our work will feature imaginations of other worlds, new ecosystems and new kinds of beings. However, these imaginations are not just a kind of trivial escapism, but can play out imaginary games and inspire the creation of new relationships. Through their imaginative power, alternative worlds can teach us how to transform our thinking, our imagination and, as a result, our behaviour and our relationship to the world. Imagination has the potential to both provide refuge, to create cracks in the walls of minds and worlds, and to provide space for healing and new kinds of thinking.


Artbiom is a multi-genre database that attempts to connect different expressions of art and culture, focusing on the environment and climate change.

The Imaginary Ecology project was a symbiotic collaboration between the following authorship and artificial intelligence:
