U-TOPIA

Put an end to Dis-aster

U-topia is no place, can't exist. Therefore comes Disaster. Dis-Aster, with no star,  σ Octantis, seaman's bearing. No place, no orientation.

We can start again from words. A brand new Utopia, but with a unicode decimal &#362, the macron capital U, where the place recovers itself, to put an end to Dis-aster, and meet orientation again. 

U-topia is about destroying utopia, a nowhere place, to create new-topias, new places, a new participatory dictionary.

Duni" and a word generation laboratory in various locations around "Città de Sassi" (lit. stones city) inside  Iglu De Vent ; Then on 24th night a neoritual was incepted all along the streets of Matera with the 'U' parade, culminating in an audio visual installation in "piazza San Giovanni" that led the audience to the 'U' distruction in the form of a local ritual called  "Lo Strazzo" .         •   U-topia is a project  promoted by    Matera 2019       based on an idea of    La Cura,  AOS Art is Open Source, Emmanuele Curti     in collaboration with Radio3 / Materadio; Concrete425; Materaelettrica / Scuola di Musica Elettronica e Applicata del Conservatorio "E.
