Institute of Radical Imagination

TOWARDS THE CONSTITUTION OF A NEW THINK TANK FOR A POST-CAPITALIST TRANSITION IN THE MEDITERRANEAN

The Institute of Radical Imagination is a hybrid between a travelling research centre, a refuge for intellectuals and artists at risk, a radical museum and a policy-making body generating ideas and applied knowledge that responds to specific urgent needs on the ground – an intellectual logistical infrastructure more than a structure, operating across existing arts, academic and activist networks.

The think-tank will work nomadically across the six nodes of the network namely, Madrid, Athens, Istanbul, Cairo, Palestine, Naples, and also connect with other nodes in global ‘the south’, specifically Eastern Europe, Latin America and South East Asia.

 


 

The Institute of Radical Imagination (IRI) consists of a group of curators, activists, scholars and cultural producers with a shared interest in co-producing research, knowledge and artistic and political research-interventions aimed at implementing post-capitalist forms of life.
