In 1516 Sir Thomas More conceived Utopia as a fictional island in the Atlantic Ocean constructed as an ideal society. The name, from Greek origin, means no-place. Eutopia on the other hand, originally means a good-place. It is speculated that More was aware of the double entendre. The word utopia has come to mean the search for ideal communities, whether economically, religiously, in government, or ecologically. Eutopia is a place where people live in plenty, in health, in peace, in prosperity with freedom and opportunity. Eutopia is an imaginary. The word Eutopia is a far goal and a mirage, but one that beckons. The utopian impulse is where we look to the future, and place ourselves in relation to what could be. Eutopia was organized by Cultureinside.com, an international group of artists based in Luxembourg and New York . Our mission is to create sustainable artist communities on the web and the world. We support exhibitions, artist initiatives, commerce, discussions and interventions as part of our artist activity We have mounted “Eutopia” in cooperation with Le Centre Culturel de Recontre Abbaye de Neumunster, which has generously provided space and support for our exhibition. In recent years it has been passé to speak about the future. In literature and film, dystopian stories abound. . The future is viewed darkly. The world is seen bound toward ruin and destruction. Modernism and the age of ideology seared us with totalitarianism, mind control, war and dreams unfulfilled; we now hesitate to look forward to any future. We have turned around to look at and mine the past instead. In an article in the Boston Post, Joshua Glenn writes about cultural critics Fredric Jameson and Russell jacoby, who have written independently about the lost utopian spirit “ The question, for thinkers like these, is how to revive the spirit of utopia - the current enfeeblement of which, Jameson claims, ''saps our political options and tends to leave us all in the helpless position of passive accomplices and impotent hand-wringers" - without repeating the errors of what Jacoby has dubbed ''blueprint utopianism," that is, a tendency to map out utopian society in minute detail. How to avoid, as Jameson puts it, effectively ''colonizing the future.” (2005) The meaning of “Eutopia” was refracted by us in several ways as we named the exhibition. The first meaning is an acknowledgment of the European experiment, which compared to the past, in it's barest outline, is moving closer to the Utopian dream. Europe has accomplished so much in the last 25 years in initiating and implementing changes that protect individuals, provide freedoms, opportunity, a social safety net, and open national and economic barriers. We noticed a secondary meaning of “Eutopia.” We are an online group. Notice the first letter E, in the beginning of the word “Eutopia”. E- can show our connections to the Internet (as in E-Bay). The Internet, still in its infancy, is connecting people throughout the world, providing information, education and cultural space. 'Although, there are negative alliances and groups on the web, we believe the Internet is generally an extremely positive development, particularly in the world of art. " Cultural space is political space. “ (2001) In regard to political space, we joined the dialog marking the current European Year of Poverty and Social Exclusion. It is important to cast our search for the future with a critical eye in the present. People have been left behind in the social contract. We construct a space between what is and what can be, in imaginal and pictorial form. It is important for artists t o illustrate, define, expose, and express the realities they see around them. Artists have the ability, and we believe the necessity to make their art relevant to aesthetic, philosophic, or political issues of the day. If it is not relevant today, will it be relevant in the future?
