Due date: Forthcoming. Publisher's description: Good Space is a fascinating blend of images and ideas envisioning a redefinition of the public realm by three communities: architectural theorists, contemporary artists and cultural theorists. The exhibition and its accompanying catalog present models, videos and designs imagining new urban experiences on society's fringes, the architecture of informational structures, surveillance and invisibility in the digital realm, and the impact of evolutionary processes of plants on urban ecology. Noted contributors, including contemporary artists Martin Creed, Hito Steyerl and Ryan Trecartin plus many others, delve into alternative thinking regarding changing spatial and cultural norms as the digital age redefines our physical relationship to our planet. The art community's surprising and subversive contemporary strategies exhibited at the Villa Merkel are integrated with historical and parallel displays of the alternative architecture collective magazine BAU, founded by Peter Cook and his seminal architecture/design group Archigram in the 1960s and '70s, to create this challenging publication.
