I appreciate your comments on my last question. My question as to a non-space (utopia) was not an affirmation of the potential for this.
I think one of the most interesting aspects to your project is its manifestation under the frame of art. This, like any other form of production can act as an interface between, in your case, reading and action. This is something which obviously happened in the historical moment of Conceptual art, with the early Analytic Conceptual Art (Kosuth, A&L, Bochner etc.) leading onto an 'engaged' Synthetic Conceptual Art (Adrian Piper, Cildo Meireles, Tuchaman Burns etc.).
In this sense, could your own work be described as a vehicle for leading the participants to some form of activism? Also, would the legacy of a pedagogical structure such as the Soviet Workers Clubs be another artistic and social precedent?
