Inspired by a classic work written by socialist pioneer William Morris, which combines utopian socialism and science fiction, this collection was conceived by two artists, Moon Kyungwon and Jeon Joonho, in order to pose fundamental questions about the social function and role of art. The book provides a platform to reflect on society as a whole from the perspective of a wide range of fields, including literature, science and the humanities, as well as from different points in time. Looking backwards, forwards and toward the present, it captures the essence of the various problems faced in the contemporary era, from financial crisis to natural and manmade disasters, which together are already leading to very real apocalyptic scenarios.
