A lecture by Constant ICA London 1963
A short performance re-enactment of Constant's lecture at the London Institute 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 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.
