Constant's grave at Zorgvlied

Constant's grave at Zorgvlied.
The stone reads:
In de kunst manifesteert zich de vrijheid
in zijn hoogste vorm:
de
scheppende verbeelding.
De kunst schept een beeld van de wereld
dat
niet eerder bestond,
neen, méér
dan dat,
een
beeld dat voordien ondenkbaar was.

Constant and New Babylon’s roots

2005

Constant’s “city for homo ludens”, New Babylon, was a “nomad camp on a planetary scale”. It was born in 1956 in Italy, at Alba, in a settlement of Piedmontese gypsies on the land of painter Pinot Gallizio. Fifty years later, Domus visits the site to reconstruct the origins of architecture’s first nomadic utopia.
