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.
A work that was offered in 2013 as a Constant resurfaces on Marktplaats.
An artist will always inspire those who come after, this too goes for Constant. The project Continuous Drift by a collective of artists in Dublin takes one of Constant's New Babylon principles as a starting point. Read more on CONTINUOUS DRIFT here.

NEW BABYLON by CONSTANT
Van der Steenhoven advocaten is a Dutch law firm, which is very much invested in copyright law and Volgrecht (Resale right). Last year they organised a Client Class to inform and discuss Resale right (Volgrecht). At the time of the Client Class there was a lawsuit pending between Pictoright, which manages the copyrights and resale rights for artists, and an art dealer who refused to give Pictoright information on what works he sold.
