A lecture by Constant ICA London 1963
A short performance re-enactment of Constant's lecture at the London Instit
ute of Contemporary Art in 1963.
New Babylon is a city plan designed to fulfill the desires of the free person, proposing new, creatively passionate architecture. Dutch artist Constant spent 20 years developing and devising New Babylon - he prepared models, blueprints, collages, sound clips, paintings, and drawings presented in a series of international lectures and exhibitions.
The lecture, which will be re-enacted at the Liebling Haus, offers a conceptual and physical description of New Babylon and explores the artist's role as a gener
ator of new and exciting ideas and the possibility of experiencing everyday life in the city as art.

A work by artist Maayan Mozes and an interview with the political activist and author Angela Davis are presented in one partitioned space.
Mozes stands on her head in front of the Knesset, physically opposing the legislature’s form and function. The book of laws authorizes the state to exercise its power against us. The physical resistance captured in Mozes’ video art is part of the history of political activity as protest, demonstration, and public performances in which the body resists and refuses to comply with authoritarian structures. It is also a demonstration of the artist’s personal and relentless opposition to the injustice of the prevailing order.
Angela Davis was among the leaders of the Black Panther Party. In 1970, Davis was wrongfully charged and incarcerated for two years, during which she led a legal battle until her acquittal. The featured interview was filmed in jail during her imprisonment. At one point, the Swedish TV crew interviewing Davis asks whether the Black Panthers will continue to resort to violence. However, instead of falling into the populist trap, Davis presents the personal and historical contexts of the question of violence, successfully framing and outlining the arguments while being behind bars.
