Lumen Station Issue #3

Virág Major
Reap & Sow
This Lumen Station publication is dealing with the strategies of self-sustenance and survival for individuals, small groups or a whole society, that have emerged primarily but not excluively within art projects and initiatives launches by artists.

Utopias, an ever unreachable ideal world and the other side of the coin, dystopias, the nightmare of a dark, fearful era have been present all along known human history. However, in the recent past there has been an inevitable abundance of theories forecasting a collapse, and, parallel or maybe even as a response to these, appeared agricultural production, self sustenance and return to nature as more optimistic, counter-utopian ideas. This is not so much an artistic impulse, but a social phenomenon, which however interests many socially- engaged artists.
