'Utopia for Children'
Utopia draws a picture of an ideal society. Frequently, there is still a great gap between this longing and the reality that surrounds us. There is a beautiful metaphor for this: diamond, the hardest mineral and graphite, the softest mineral, are both carbon. Due to their molecular structure, however, there are great differences in their strength. This principle could also apply to mankind. Fixed, inelastic systems are created through hierarchical structures, nationality and religion. If we were to recollect our original, great common ground of being-human beings, these fixed structures would break open. The series Camerata Mobile 2019 meets and explores all of these worlds and new realities.
