Utopian Pulse – Flares in the Darkroom is a research exhibition by Ines Doujak and Oliver Ressler divided into 8 salons, curated by a group of artist-curators and perceived as places for the monstrous birth of new alliances. We understand »Utopia« as an always incomplete alternative, the invocation within the given world of something incompatible with, and hostile to, given condition, an assertion of the unrealized in and against the real.


The 7 Salons of Utopian Pulse – Flares in the Darkroom taking place from September 10 to November 2, 2014 are curated by Christoph Schäfer, Mariam Ghani, Bert Theis, Zanny Begg, AND AND AND, Pedro G. Romero/Máquina P.H., and Miguel A. López.

The first public appearance of Utopian Pulse – Flares in the Darkroom was  Salon Klimbim, orchestrated by the artist-curator Fahim Amir and Ines Doujak on January 23, 2014 in correspondence with Oliver Ressler.
Salon Klimbim presented a range of performances on utopian ice. No intellectual dress code applied, no Frontex patrolled the borders of contemporariness, and no police watched over this utopia. Instead, there were politics and party, dance and folly, screenings and seduction, intervention and agitation, in short: negotiations and entertainments.

Between February and September 2014 a series of 7 large-scale billboards – Urgent Alternatives: Utopian Moments – were displayed on the façade of the Secession. They represented the plight of migrants; showed the uprisings and social movements of recent years; and made poetic addresses to the present and future. Urgent Alternatives: Utopian
Moments with Katarzyna Winiecka, Halil Altindere, Wealth of Negations, Nobodycorp. Internationale Unlimited, Etcétera, Oreet Ashery, Daniela Ortiz.
