WE SHOULD ALL BE DREAMING is a concept that focuses on the radical potential of dreaming as a restorative and subversive practice. The project will take place at the Museum of Impossible Forms in two iterations:
Thursday 10.11, from 18:00 - 20:00 (workshop, BIPOC only)
Friday 11.11, from 18:00 - 20:30 (soft gathering with food)
WSABD comes with a straightforward suggestion: we should all be dreaming radical utopian dreams of common futures. Situating itself somewhere between a collective thinktank, choreographed gathering, a performance and a lecture the project gently invites the participants to spend time, listen and dream together. WSABD attempts a strategic deviation – it does not only fight against, react to or reveal the grim realities of the surrounding world but instead works as a platform of soft resistance by making space for communal coexistence.
Due to limited capacity registration is mandatory through the following links:
