It's with pride that we announce the upcoming New Babylon exhibition at the Museo Nacional de Arte Reina Sofia opening on October 20th 2015! This co-op between Reina Sofia and Gemeentemuseum Den Haag will be the largest overview of Constant's New Babylon project since the New Babylon exhibition in Witte de With in 1999 curated by Roland Groenenboom under director Barthomé Marie! During this exhibition the book New Babylon: The Hyper Architecture of Desire by Mark Wigley was presented, which is still the leading publication on Constant's New Babylon project.
