Backdoor Fantasies features art marked by the desire for new beginnings, experimentation, and transformation. It also encompasses utopian ideas, but not a static vision of a supposedly better world or a global catastrophe. Artists often look with ambivalence toward the future, peering behind façades and mistrusting grandiose promises.

They can also regard technological and urban changes in the same way. In contrast to concepts with pointedly defined goals, like rationalized urban planning projects, transformation in art is an open-ended process that allows room for individual projections and fantasies.
