2006  Ideal City | Invisible Cities

Ideal City – Invisible Cities


On the occasion of the exhibition Revolver Verlag presents an extensive catalogue in a Polish-English version and a German-English version. The catalogue includes texts on all participating artists by authors like Manuel Borja-Villel, Luca Cerizza, Sebastian Cichocki, Mark Gisbourne, Brigitte Huck, Martina Fuchs, Daniel Marzona, Kaja Pawełek, Anda Rottenberg, Susanne Titz and four essential essays, dealing with the various aspects of the theme.

The exhibition curators Sabrina van der Ley and Markus Richter trace the relationships between the history of concepts on the Ideal City and the visuals arts, which quite often dedicate themselves explicitly to the ‚invisible cities’. Kasha Bittner gives an overview on development, shape and history of the city of Zamość and Jan Maruhn and Carsten Schmidt critically explore the question whether Potsdam, the second venue, can also be referred to as an ‘Ideal City’. In another contribution Jan Maruhn confronts the two ‚classical’ Ideal Cities of late Modernism, Chandigarh and Brasilia with the plannings of the Polish architect Oskar Hansen with a foreword by Anda Rottenberg.
