Faced with the health crisis but also the economic crises affecting the world, there is a need to think collectively about the urgent changes to be made to guarantee that the world works well tomorrow. The Civic City association, founded by Ruedi and Vera Baur, intends to use the Nuit des alter-réalités to bring forth possible alternatives to today’s world.

Continuing on from the Etrange nuit du design, which the association organised last October, the night of 13 to 14 July 2021 will show that the utopian imaginations that keep us hoping are potentially within reach. But you still need to be persuaded of this to make these utopias the reality of tomorrow!

The discussions and debates will strongly echo the 2021 Porto Design Biennale, which has the theme “Alter realities”. Incidentally the Nuit des Alter-réalités is organised in partnership with French curators Caroline Naphegyi and Sam Baron, as well as the Institut français in Portugal, who are developing the programme of the Biennale’s guest country, France.
