Workshop #2 : Dystopic and Utopian Cities

About the Workshop

Dystopic and Utopian imagination of our cities is serious business. Often when sci-fi writers describe the cities of future, it is actually a critical commentary on the state of our society today. By engaging in a utopian or a dystopian imagination we make people think and question the present. Through this workshop we hope to create such visual imaginations of Indian cities. The participants will be given theoretical inputs on various critical theories and practices around the subjects of fiction and imagination of future cities. The participants will then be guided to create their own dystopic or utopian imaginations for Indian cities. The final outcome may be a series of publication ready drawings/ posters or even a short comic strip.

Who can Participate

The workshop is ideal for students and professionals in architecture and Fine Arts.

Workshop will be conducted from 22nd to 26th December 2018.
