Perfect Place/No Place: Re-Imagining Utopia

From the time of Plato's Republic to the present, the problem of utopian vision has been its conflation with the impossible and oppressive striving for "perfection." Yet the desire to create a better world is perennial, and as surely as utopian imagination encompasses its alter ego, dystopia, it remains a powerful interpretive force. If the speculative power of utopia has always been most vital at moments of crisis, what is its relevance to the current moment? What are the potentialities and pitfalls of utopian thinking? As creative and critical agents of culture, artists are its symbolic authors.
