"World Bank" or "world revolution"? Furious citizen? Freedom fighter? Environmental activist? The approaches to the grand, old social utopias have become difficult nowadays. One hears that the world and its problems are too networked and too complex that they cannot be described or approached using the vocabularies of the 19th and 20th centuries – which are laden with ideology. The continuing emphasis is that the current problems involving the environment, population, poverty, and health can only be managed by active global policies. And yet the political attempts to repair the more and more obvious collateral damage of economical and technological progress appear to be increasingly helpless. The bank crisis and the oil well in the Gulf of Mexico were yesterday, the threat of bankrupt countries and the collapsing Japanese nuclear power plant Fukushima are today. They have become allegories for the impossibility of dealing with global crises in a timely manner. Forty years after the Club of Rome report "The Limits to Growth," there are more and more indications that the mantra of technical and economic progress as a solution or universal remedy has turned out to be today a mere myth of an epoch that appears to be coming to an end. SOCIAL FICTIONS invites artists and scientists to contemplate other options, new ideas, and "old" traditions on three Sundays.
