Anti-Utopias profiles the work of artists who delve into both dystopian and idealistic themes. It’s hard to pin down exactly why this website is so excellent, but I suspect it’s the same reason that futuristic tales like Brave New World captivate us: it shows art’s ability to teeter on the precipice of what cannot be and what must be. We can’t help but dream of better ways and systems of being and doing, but we doubt these systems can exist. This is a website to get lost in.
