Stockholm based artist Love Enqvist will explore social and artistic utopias and their role in creating alternative models of public engagement. He will investigate how art projects and theories critically examine rather than promote the fantasies of the public sphere as a unified totality without conflicts or difference, has contributed to this transformation. His book Diggers and Dreamers - Intentional Communities in a New Age, draws upon a myriad of utopian visions which are expressed through architecture, communities and personal reflections. What sets these intentional communities apart from other utopian dreams of a society, free from private property and from commercial exchange either of goods or of labor is that they survived into the present, seemingly against historical odds.
