New Babylon - Antwerpen
Materials: Black and coloured ink on city map, 52 cm × 64 cm. Collection Kunstmuseum Den Haag
New Babylon is a fully automated society inhabited by adventurous and playful people, who discover their own creative qualities together with others, and who lead an existence in which they can continuously travel and be creative. It is a worldwide network of pillared sectors, where all kinds of transportation circulate below and above. The sectors are open and communal spaces, within which the New Babylonians could build new environments and routes with movable walls, floors, stairs, bridges, and ladders. Individuality no longer exists in New Babylon. Everyone is an artist, and the social space is the joint work of art.
