miart 2018: miartalks

Pav. 3, Gate 5, Fiera Milano, Viale Scarampo

Brought together under the title “What Can We Imagine?” miartalks 2018 explores imagination as an essential force that creates and transforms reality, rather than as a form of escape from the present. Together with the invited speakers, we will explore the individual and collective boundaries of imagination, we will question “where” is it possible to imagine and if there are places where imagining is utopian; how imagination can become a daily exercise and, finally, what can we imagine for a future that is already here?
