Utopia is by definition a place that does not exist, but designed as a map on the horizon generates the potential for change.
On Thursday, June 6, the Norwegian artist Margrethe Kolstad Brekke opened the second appointment with the Lottozero exhibitions for the Casa Atelier of Museion. The research center for art, design and textile culture, founded by the Bolzano-based Arianna and Tessa Moroder in Prato, is in fact a guest, in 2019, in the spaces of the Casa Atelier with three site-specific projects curated by Alessandra Tempesti.
"How to Implement Utopia": Margrethe Kolstad Brekke's project is an invitation to rethink the conquest of flight in the history of humanity. The hang glider, symbol of this realized utopia, in the artist's work becomes the bearer of a new utopian thrust on urgent topical issues such as climate change and renewable energy sources. Within its path, the hang-glider is in fact the landing point for research on these issues and in particular on the High Altitude Wind Power (Airborne Wind Energy) which uses wind energy through flying devices, such as drones or kites.
