What are the possibilities and pitfalls of imagining a better future? Hey, Utopia! explores the ramifications of Thomas More's term in a range of contexts: the possible and the improbable, the out of reach and almost realised.
Edited by Ashley Hay and featuring work by Sarah Sentilles, Thurston Moore & John Kinsella, Ellen van Neervan, Alex Cothren, Fiona Foley and Lea McInerney, Griffith Review 73 looks into visions past and present, those with potential and those that proved punishing.
Listen to Editor Ashley Hay read her introduction to Griffith Review 73: Hey, Utopia!, 'Reframing the thought experiment'.
