Starting from the concept of utopian realism formulated by sociologist McKenzie Wark, Lisa Andreani will analyze what it means to live in a utopia that became real for a moment but is now completely destroyed. She will formulate a proposal for a museum practice that would be able to unfold the diverse social life of the city embodied into materials, objects, buildings.
Having participated in the research on the occasion of the Bauhaus centenary, Lisa Andreani will apply methods used in her research on Eisenhüttenstadt.
Lisa Andreani is a freelance art historian, writer and curator currently based in Rome, where she is curatorial and editorial coordinator at MACRO - Museo d‘Arte Contemporaneo Roma.
