FLAGS FOR FUTURE
ISTANBUL’74 and Utöpia showcasing the Flags for Future sustainability project at at the 16th Contemporary Istanbul.
Utöpia turns flags into a new media. One of the oldest symbols of communication in the world, the flag now occupies a renewed place in public space. In a world where we are tied to the virtual publics and social networks of our screens, the medium of the flag invites us to raise our heads to the sky. These artist flags have become vectors of communication. As flags are made using fabrics woven from recycled ocean waste materials, Utöpia is participating in the movement for ocean protection and awareness.
