The exhibition Utopraxia refers to the moment when a seemingly unrealizable intension becomes real. In a minimum amount of time there is a radical -renewing and violent together- perceptive and cognitive expansion.

The revelation of the multiple inconspicuous possibilities inherent in any standstill is magnificent. Its magnificence lies at the sudden transition occurring when the temporary character of all previous conventions is raised, revealing new extensions of freedom.

At those moments, the non-place of utopia slippers to implementation, letting definitions that have been attributed to utopia hovering in mid-air.

The exhibition shows a series of conceptual artifacts. The artworks present transgressive thoughts and penetrating messages that were visualized in order to be communicated.

The exhibition Ecophenomena underlines a new form of social sustainability creating the conditions for coexistence and dialogue between selected creators, groups and technicians that explore a new, inventive, at the same time ecological way of living.

Participants from different areas compose targeted proposals for a wide range of basic human needs, from nutrition to housing. Diverse proposals such building with the use of natural materials and self-managing household energy are being presented together with installations by architects and graphic designers in an effort to urge our daily life towards a more ecological direction.
