Twilight Land explores the feeling of standing on the threshold of the unknown. Of realising that our lives cannot continue in the same way and that the world, as we know it, is changing at a rapid pace. The convergence of an ecological, a geopolitical and democratic crisis worries and frightens. At the same time, and in the midst of this darkness, a vibrant transition movement engages people all over the world, striving for a positive paradigm shift – towards a more life-affirming way of thinking and living. Twilight – the transition from day to night – might be associated with a fear of the approaching darkness, but also with creativity and fruitful encounters between imagination and reality. The texts and artistic practises featured in this book derive their nourishment from somewhere between destruction and creation, confusion and clarity, fear, and hope.
