In Our Beautiful Future was an eight-person collaborative banner and poster project with Martha Rosler and the FLEAS Collective, an international group of socially-engaged artists. As a collective project on the theme of utopia, each member’s contribution was autonomous; as an assemble, they presented a¬†heterogeneous voice.

In the context of the Utopia Station Project at the Venice Biennale, local voices are brought into the international forum as a gesture of global connectivity. The banner was subsequently printed in Austrian newspapers through the Museums in Progress.
