Two artists and a group of Finnish designers counter stigma and social exclusion in swimwear collection for women who suffered mastectomy: “We think that the current focus on breast reconstruction after mastectomy as the only way to a full life, is a breast-fixated way of seeing what a woman is."

Japanese new media artist Macoto Murayama uses the latest computer technologies to create stunning digital botanical illustrations that follow scientific traditions while giving new images to the mechanics and general laws of organic forms. The precision and “correct” depiction of the object meets in his works with the aesthetics and enjoyment of the plant in analysis. Murayama dissects and researches the flowers, makes numerous sketches and photographs of the details studding their structure and then, moving into digital dimension, recreates the plant body with the help of 3D computer graphics software. He applies indications of measurements, names of parts, scales and other descriptive elements with excessive details, creating a “blueprint of nature” where the mechanics and the general laws of nature come to the surface entering a fascinating relationship with its beauty and elegancy.

Anti-Utopias is an international thematic contemporary art platform focused on discussing art projects and works dealing with utopias and anti-utopias. Open for international submissions
Introduction
About the platform
 
Anti-Utopias is a thematic and critical international contemporary art platform founded in 2011 and curated by Sabin Borș. The aim of the platform is to bring together international artists whose works directly or indirectly involve utopian, anti-utopian and dystopian subjects and approaches.
 
The platform is open for international submissions and will constantly publish new works, regardless of the artists’ medium of expression (photography, installation art, painting, etc.). The selection criteria depend on the works’ accordance to the main subject of the platform and its structuring categories.
 
 
Platform categories
 
Bodies | Narratives | Identities | Spiritualities
Politics | Globalization | Technologies | New Natures
Structures, Objects, and Representations

Artist Index – an index of featured contemporary artists that leads you to all the posts related to each artist.
 
 
Related content
 
Anti-Utopias is not a magazine. But because it is a critical platform, we’re also featuring related content such as artist interviews and conversations, theoretical articles and discussions, art catalog reviews and art book reviews related to the featured artists or topics, news from us and third parties that we believe to be of interest to everyone who navigates on our website.

News
 
We are also featuring some extra modules to help you find video and digital art more easily. The Video Art section features all projects that include various forms of video art, art documentaries, and related materials, while the Digital Renaissance section includes all projects that involve digital manners of representation.

Extra features
 
This platform is first of all a critical curatorial project dedicated to international artists from around the world, as well as art enthusiasts and art specialists, art galleries and institutions. This is why we believe it is important to offer you a complete curatorial project featuring three distinct components:
 
1) the Anti-Utopias website, which serves to bring new artists to the platform besides those selected by the curator himself, and give you a chance to see new and interesting art projects;
 
2) the annual Anti-Utopias catalog, containing a selection from the works published throughout the year, as well as exclusive projects, theory, interviews, and additional materials;
 
3) a series of traveling exhibitions, designed to promote the platform and its participating artists.
 
Though there is almost no limit to the works submitted online, the works selected for the catalogs will be carefully reviewed before a final decision regarding their publication. The 2012 catalog will be published in the late summer of 2012 and will feature the artists who are currently presented on the website, along with an impressive number of additional and exclusive materials (exclusive art projects, theoretical articles, interviews and discussions, etc.). More information on the catalog will be provided in the upcoming months in a separate section of the website.
 
 
Our goal
 
The platform’s main goal is to bring a critical contribution to contemporary art and make more visible artists from around the world who share various artistic visions on common themes and topics, regardless of their medium of expression, ideas, or techniques. Anti-Utopias brings together artists and specialists from different communities and facilitates contact and idea exchange between them. The editorial line of the platform focuses on personal approaches (artist presentations, artist interviews and discussions, art catalog and book reviews).
 
Anti-Utopias is also a platform of contemporary art, having a constantly increasing number of followers on all its related platforms. It publishes works and profiles of contemporary artists, high quality images of their works, artist conversations, and distributes information on contemporary art exhibitions.
 
Created by Sabin Borș, a young curator from Cluj-Napoca, Romania, Anti-Utopias will always be open to submissions and requests from artists, galleries or institutions. This curatorial enterprise is managed by Sabin Borș through Xpose Art Collective, a nonprofit organization created and managed by the curator himself.
