IC Book Festival: Utopic Salon

After a guided tour beginning at 3:30, the weekend-long sound installation “Hortus,” by Patrícia Portela and Christoph de Boeck, will culminate in a salon discussion. Guest speakers from different disciplines will debate and discuss two different visions of a near future (2020 and 2084). In this informal atmosphere, everyone will be invited to “exercise and practice Utopia,” rather than being presented with a model. The audience will be encouraged to add suggestions or extra themes to the debate by imagining the impossible.
