Perfect Place/No Place: Re-Imagining Utopia
From the time of Plato's Republic to th e present\, the problem of utopian vision has been its conflation with the impossible and oppressive striving for "perfection." Yet the desire to crea te a better world is perennial\, and as surely as utopian imagination encom passes its alter ego\, dystopia\, it remains a powerful interpretive force. If the speculative power of utopia has always been most vital at moments o f crisis\, what is its relevance to the current moment? What are the potent ialities and pitfalls of utopian thinking? As creative and critical agents of culture\, artists are its symbolic authors.
