The art of a culture of hope

2016 – Onwards.  Diary.

Collaboration with Jessica Huber.

“The future isn’t looking hopeful. Climate change, mass migration, financial instability, peak oil, wars in the Arab world and beyond, destabilisation within Europe, attacks on the value and importance of the civil & human rights. It’s difficult to look into the future without fear.”

This project will attempt to introduce a new law for Switzerland giving every resident the right to a ‘culture of hope’, thus banning the politics of fear. The precise law will be defined with residents of Switzerland through a 2 year process of tender provocations and hopeful workshops.

Partners to date Gessnerallee Zurich, Sudpol Luzern, Theater Roxy Basel and Theatre de l’usine Geneva.
