In our hands: An experiential installation
Ernst Bloch declared in The Spirit of Utopia, ‘Life has been put into our hands.’
Picking up this direction this project will give audiences the chance to experience a collection of intercultural Utopian expressions drawn from Navajo designs to Roger Fry and Slavoj Žižek, and our stories of creation. Le Gun Collective and Dr Richard Howells demonstrate how humankind is striving to fashion a better world from the raw materials we inherit.
Dr Richard Howells is a cultural sociologist specialising in visual and popular culture, as well as cultural and critical theory.
Le Gun Collective create idiosyncratic imagery which blends a punk, occult, pop and surrealist aesthetic. As well as being the producers of their cult self-titled magazine, the group is internationally recognised for their enigmatic installations and art shows.
