DEMAND Utopia! presents readings by the Institute of Urban
Dreaming (IUD) and guests, popup exhibitions and screenings.
DEMAND Utopia! also sees the launch of All Materials of
Value an IUD publication featuring responses by artists, academics
& tenants to walking in a Salford housing estate, along with broader
issues to do with the commodification of housing. Nicholas
Mansfield will present a talk entitled ‘Owenites, Chartists to Clarion
Socialists and their educational spaces’ which offers some context
for IUD’s temporary research space, an interactive environment for
sharing and learning, which was launched at the People’s History
Museum in October 2016.
