A Return to the Island
A Return to the Island is a publication that gathers the contributions of 30 artists, writers, theorists, philosophers, musicians and other thinkers to return to Thomas Mores island of Utopia, from a contemporary perspective. The book revisits the ideals of modernity along with its broken promises and aims to recover a lost future among imaginary and real cartographies. Divided into four chapters, it encompasses a sea-voyage metaphor to explore the island, the sea, time and the horizon. The publication, besides functioning as a register of utopian thoughts, seeks to promote the construction of utopias through a place that is essential to imagine the future: art.
