MutulArt.com brings an interesting article about Utopian (and Dystopian) art works at Art Basel, in which Constant's New Babylon has not gone unnoticed.
The article deals with the project DO WE DREAM UNDER THE SAME SKY by Rirkrit Tiravanija in collaboration with German architects Nikolaus Hirsch/Michel Müller and Finnish chef Antto Melasniemi, Constant's New Babylon presented by Borzo, Kader Attia’s large-scale installation Arab Spring (2014) at Art Unlimited, the digital surrealism of Ed Atkins (presented by Cabinet in Unlimited) to the precarious constructions of Sarah Sze (presented by Tanya Bonakdar Gallery) and Alyson Shotz’s Imaginary Sculptures (2014-2015, presented by Carolina Nitsch Gallery).
