Utopia seems to have been one of the culturally unconscious aspects of our society. If for a while its study was limited to literary traditions drawing on Thomas More, in recent years many authors have been updating and expanding the narrative about what constitutes the utopian tradition, incorporating fields such as art, architecture, performative practices, communities, and political movements.

From the sphere of utopian studies, this type of analysis has been systematised, understanding the utopian impulse as a human element that has taken various forms. But, while this approach opens the space of what we can consider utopia, it sometimes continues granting a fundamental importance to texts, without always addressing some of the ambiguities and paradoxes that are put forward by the world of the image.
