Pfade Durch Utopie is a poetic, inspiring + informative ride, a film + book project on publishing. John and Isa took six months to travel to a wide variety of european communes, squats, community land projects, and people living off-the-grid…

They were recently in Berlin presenting the film at both Lichtblick and Sputnik Kino. We asked them if they found that these kinds of projects often finds people living in a kind of escapist bubble…( or, rather, it does not confront the forces which are destroying the planet ). And they said they mostly encountered people who were deeply engaged with their communities and the local + global political landscapes. And for them personally, their interests as activists are far from dropping out from the crashing system around them, but rather creating a base where ( interventionist?) workshops (and residencies?) can happen. We also asked if they’d be interested to document such projects on other continents, and they smiled… For them this was an intense production… and they couldn’t foresee jumping into another media-making endeavor so soon. They seemed eager to use the research for building their own home, family and community outside the London rat race… in northern France. And continuing to organize and give workshops on arts + activism. ( i.e. at events like where they had just come from – Kampnagel festival in Hamburg).



Speaking of homes, Xj Podinski has a sort of new… residency…
