Publication of this title has been cancelled. Publisher's description: Transparency used to be a noble modernist ideal, perfectly suited to design objects and institutions. More recently, in response to global political and economic developments, transparency became a loose set of strategies and tactics to scrutinize and expose the existing order -- the behavior and secrets of governments, corporations and other organizations. The new transparency is vigilant, eclectic, immediate, and often humorous. From the revelations of WikiLeaks to the actions of Anonymous, it is more insurgent than institutional, and more civic than corporate, marking the emerging politization of a generation raised on global consumer culture. In Black Transparency, Metahaven investigates, questions, proclaims and illustrates design principles of this new movement and highlights its significance for architecture, art and design.
