"Working Utopias" is a research project of choreographer Christina Ciupke and organisation researcher Anke Strauß that focuses on the social side of artistic work. In the last two years, they have visited various artist-led organizations and initiated dialogues on collaboration, solidarity, situatedness and conditions of their artists’ work-lives. Sharing turned out to operate as an utopian principle that needs constant negotiation. The sympósion revolves around the principle of sharing by gathering people around a table for conversations on desires, dreams and longings for diverse relationships that shape and are shaped by their worklives.
