Creating Worlds is a multi-annual research project that investigates the relationship between art production and knowledge production in the context of the transformations and crises of contemporary capitalism. Creativity becomes an ambivalent term here, “creating worlds” meaning a modulating procedure in cognitive capitalism and societies of control, but also an emerging political dimension of creativity as political imagination and invention of new lines of flight, new struggles, new worlds.
Creating Worlds is a project of Vienna-based European Institute for Progressive Cultural Policies (eipcp), and funded by WWTF, the Vienna Science and Technology Fund. The project is a collaboration of eight artist researchers and involves research, publication and artistic projects. It will be developed in the years 2009 to 2012.
