A collective still

A Collective Arrangement of 18 minutes

Manuscript for a play, video.

The piece came out of the idea of making a bodily re-enactment of two literary works. David Harvey’s ’Spaces of Hope’, 2000 and Charles Fourier’s ’Stammefællesskabet’, 1889. The manuscript combines the appendix in Harveys book ’Spaces of Hope’ with that of Fourier’s utopian vision for a collective society dated in the late 1900 century. A society in which the members experiment with the nuclear family structure, sexual behaviour, child rearing, living arrangements, economy and social forms of engagements.


swop projects, 2003 – 2011

By Andrea Creutz and Lise Skou

Swop Projects is as a platform for production and dissemination of materials and
ideas surrounding contemporary political, economic and social debate.

The projects visualize and communicate models for economic systems that function
as counterparts to the dominant monetary economy.



By Lise Skou and Nis Rømer

The work has been shown widely internationally

The Revenge of the Crystal, is a five-part fictional narrative set in the aftermath of the present financial collapse. It is a moment in the near future when the failing global monetary system has destroyed almost every institution, and the decay of society has become a habit where a few alternative visions exists.
