About the Labyrinth
The first Utopian Labyrinth rose in an old mosaic factory on the waterfront of Amsterdam. A collaborative effort of a group of artists that share a fascination with utopian strategies, resulted in an installation that invited the audience to wander and explore the current possibilities of formulating a better world. In an attempt to surpass the nihilist claim that postmodernism made on utopian practices concerning their failure, danger or death, we investigated the small and unpretentious dreams and critique of young artists concerning te future. We consider it a pilot study for more Labyrinths on locations that have yet to be discovered..
