At the beginning of the second decade of the 21st century hope seems to occupy centre stage on the political and cultural scene. Though a lot of the time no more than a rhetoric strategy to get people in line on issues like ecological doom, global confusion or political terror, a contemporary understanding of hope might prove to be a useful strategy in constructing a different perspective on our social and artistic attitudes.

Hope in this age is no longer projected upon a distant utopia, a far-away future. We no longer believe in the big ideologies, since we seem to have been sucked up head-over-heels by the all-encompassing musings of capitalism. Instead of dreaming about a bloody revolution, hope situates itself today in the eternal now: in every situation, relation, ethical set-up you commit to.

In other words: hope is about rethinking space and relations, about daring to allow change to happen, however small, in whatever kind of way. A hopeful gesture is one that alters the situation: between me and you, between me and my environment, and in that moment changes both of us.
