Historical Utopias: Nutopia

This weekend was the birthday of John Lennon, and to celebrate, we are profiling his and Yoko Ono's vision: Nutopia. Announced on April 1, 1973 (April Fool's) this was an artistic and political statement. Reminiscent of the hopeful world he described in his 1971 song, Imagine, it is an idealistic concept. The national anthem was three seconds of silence. Read the declaration, watch the announcement, live the dream.
