Utopian Union is a collective focused on non-institutional learning, interdisciplinary collaboration, and artistic practice. Utopian Union uses art as a space for the imaginary, where new aesthetics, cultural movements, and models can be developed. 2031 is an offspring project of Utopian Union led by Ana Gzirishvili and Sara Løve Daðadóttir. It envisions the year 2031, investigating scenarios of utopian ideas using LARP (live-action role- play) as a methodology, and inviting academics, artists, designers, social entrepreneurs, scientists, students, activists and others who share a desire for new perspectives and utopias to participate.
