Michel Foucault in his text “Of Other Spaces” describes real places “which are something like counter-sites, a kind of effectively enacted utopia in which the real sites, all the other real sites that can be found within the culture, are simultaneously represented, contested, and inverted”. He calls them heterotopias and gives examples of these spaces: prisons, cemeteries, ships, libraries…

The ZK/U considers itself a heterotopic space of sorts. At the same time it is neighbouring other heterotopic spaces: prisons, cemeteries, ships, libraries …

The ZK/U’s Fact Finding Committee # 2 on “Heterotopic Spaces” researches the future of the ZK/U as a civic and socio-cultural space. 

The leasehold contract of the ZK/U expires on February 29, 2052.

The Fact Finding Committee # 2 invites to attend the inaugural inspection of a possible future ZK/U by walking along the heterotopic fringes of the ZK/U on February 29, 2052 (simulated on January 12, 2019 – or vice versa).
