How do we want to live together in the future?

We Is Future: Visions of New Communities revolves around the longing for an ideal community, a life in harmony with nature and with each other. Looking at 120 years of artistic visions, the six chapters within this book lead from the Life Reform movement around 1900, via the visionary architectural designs of Bruno Taut or Wenzel Hablik, through to Constant’s urban utopia New Babylon, built around the of idea the playful human being. It also examines the Hippie Modernism of the 1960s and moves on to consider contemporary positions that suggest a symbiosis of all living beings in and with nature. The works presented are an expression of a striving for new ways of living in the present and the future. The artistic perspective within the publication is expanded by scientific and personal contributions and an artist interview. Its sustainable design also traces an ideal.
