In addition to a number of scientists and artists, the Japanese artist and activist Yoshiaki Kaihatsu, an ACC alumni, was invited to design the central island of freedom for the ZU. Since Kaihatsu's works are always based on a cooperative formation and reinterpretation of a concrete social environment, his island of freedom will by no means correspond to the cliché of the lonely island. Rather, the Japanese activist creates a space that looks like a futuristic extra-terrestrial living room and invites you to grapple with questions of freedom in the 21st century in various formats. The result is a spaceship of free speech.
