The Handbook for Social, Ecological and Existential Utopia is published on occasion of the exhibition Life on Planet Orsimanirana. It understands itself as a ”collidoscope“ of a decentralised, non-hierarchical and generative process of world building by a diverse group of local and international collectives, activists, artists and designers. It brings together these varying and divergent positions in a visual stream of consciousness. It thereby aims to lay a joyful groundwork to create the world we want to live—against the backdrop of the social, ecological and existential crises we face today—on a practical, imaginary as well as symbolic level.
