Change Utopia! An interview with Hou Hanru

What is utopia? What does it mean to change utopia now? Is the role of the artist to destroy the current failing utopias or is it to create new utopias? How one could read the current situation in Hong Kong from a cultural and artistic perspective?

Those and others are the questions that are addressed by Chinese curator Hou Hanru in a dialogue with Luigi Galimberti, coordinator of Transnational Dialogues. The interview was filmed on the occasion of the event “TD @ MAXXI”, Rome, 15-16 November 2014.
