Marc  Engelhardt  (Editor) - Completely Utopian


17 successful projects of an alternative life style from all over the world

The increasingly close meshed life principles of a globalised economic order barely seem to leave room for alternatives and visions. At the same time, there is a growing longing for meaning, recognition and community in a world whose structure is getting more and more complicated. But indeed, they are to be found – projects and alternative societies in which, on the edge of globalisation, people with a spirit of adventure and a lot of chutzpah fulfil their dreams of a better life in the here and now and in the process are not infrequently extremely harsh in their criticism of established states.

Marc Engelhardt and his Weltreporter colleagues have visited such utopias in all parts of the world, from anarchy to sustainability, from love and creativity to freedom of information. In Argentina, Brazil, China, Denmark, Ethiopia, Germany, Greece, Indonesia, Israel, Namibia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, Serbia, South Africa, Spain, and the USA. Next exit: Utopia.

With a foreword by Ilija Trojanow.
