Massive changes

BRUCE MAU / How about looking back over 30 years, to be able to see and act into the future?

This article was translated by Google and R.E.

I have long been fascinated by the future. What changes we humans will encounter along the way is also something that is suggested by the newspaper name MODERN TIMES.

When I bought 30 years ago Incorporations (sixth book in the ZONE Books series), this was a thicket of a book, designed by the Canadian Bruce Mau (1959–). An anthology with the most important thinkers about the present and the future. Later, in 1995, Mau and star architect Rem Koolhaas published the book S, M, L, XL (Small, Medium, Large, Extra-Large) with critical essays, manifestos, travelogues, architecture and thoughts on contemporary cities. In addition to these two books, I also bought Massive Change (Faidon, 2002), of which Mau was editor – along with Jennifer Leonard and Institute Without Boundaries. The three advanced designed books made up a full 20 centimeters of the bookshelf.

A few months ago, about 20 years later, the documentary came out MAU -

THE APPENDIX:

The periphery is being urbanised

The articles in this appendix of ORIENTERING shows which problems are linked to cities and poverty, pandemic, war, conflict, energy, food, flight, floods and fear.
HELL:

Two testaments over life

Is it possible to simultaneously touch on four major themes, such as sin and evil, the desire for knowledge and conquest, relationships and competition, or the fear of death itself? Let me try in this essay – about Thomas Hylland Eriksen and Dante.

The war – and most people

In this summer issue, as MODERN TIMES's editor, I publish a selection of articles that probably reflect different opinions than most people have about the war in Ukraine.
