Originating in a bold exhibition at the Secession in Vienna (2014), this book examines moments in social and cultural life where there are glimpses of utopia, where other possibilities of being are imagined and even partially realised including Latin American carnivals, forgotten histories, queer utopias, science fiction, workers' control of factories and more.

The work of a range of international artists and art theorists explores and creates practices ignited by a utopian impulse. Grounded in the idea that utopian imaginations are needed to organise society differently, the book explores how art practice engaged in the present can give light to necessarily incomplete alternative futures.

This book will serve not only as a contribution to the existing literature on Utopia and Utopian politics, but also as an inspiration to artists seeking to realise these ideas through their work.
