"Embassy of the United Nations of Utopia"

For the period of four days, we set up an imaginary embassy of the United Nations of Utopia in the town hall of the district Neukölln in Berlin. The declaration of Utopia on imaginary basis contrasts with the reality of a public space.

Visitors are welcomed at the reception desk in the entrance hall and are subsequently indoctrinated with utopian information and handed out questionnaires concerning their fantasies of fear and desire. Showcases displaying trophies and insigniae, as well as videos and active contributions by invited artist and musicians, conveye utopian impressions. A lectern is available for spontaneous speeches.
