Notes on Utopia is a four-part video made in 2003 and 2004. The first two parts were presented at the Venice Biennale of 2003 as part of the Utopia Station project.
„The Utopia Station project is making me rethink and try to sum-up all my past thoughts on utopia, all the varaiations of it, inculding the Garden of Eden, Paradise, utopian social, political and peotic theories, etc. As I am going through this process of rethinking, periodically I videotape my thoughts on the subject. An open-ended video […].
My thoughts on it change as time goes, as I am trying to figure it out for myself, the meaning of it, the practice of it, the possibility of it, in the past, today and in the future.” (J.M.)
