Shedhalle feat. Goldproduktionen

Clubhouse Utopia

A parlour game

March, 7 – 29, 2016

The trust in the capabilities of our societies to change is essential to handle problems effecting all of us, for example the rise of energy consumption or the divide between rich and poor. These are topics that will effect us also in the future an that show the necessity of decisions and action. And also this should happen not from individuals but from a responsible community. Futurology should not stay in the hands of the mighty powers, so Goldproduktionen and representatives of certain associations are going to think about the future for a whole evening.

A coproduction of Shedhalle, Goldproduktionen and Fabriktheater.

No matter where we look at: The crisis keeps us busy. The crisis has a lock on us: Political crisis, Refugees crisis, financial crisis, ecological crisis dominate the media’s headlines. Future is no promise any more. The future seems to be in danger and threatening.

The artist collective Goldproduktionen gives the impetus to the dominating pessimism to create trust with Clubhouse Utopia for the transformative capacity of communities. Believing in a common customizable future the collective invites ten Zurich associations to a dinner in its mobile clubhouse in the Shedhalle.

In a three-course meal including a game we will create visions for Zurich in 2116. At every evening we keep on building the walk-in installation and document the resulting visions.

13:00-17:00 Keepers of some secrets are on site.

They were there as club members at one of the club evenings and tell vistors of the talks, visions and events of the evening.
