This artist's book is an illustrated and disenchanted reflection on democracy and its imperfections. Using two different colors, the artist dissociates two layers of meanings—the text and the image—while maintaining a close dialectic.
Yona Friedman (born 1923 in Budapest, lives and works in Paris) has since the middle of the 20th century been developing the concept of “mobile architecture” according to which housing and town planning should be conceived by their users and should integrate the unpredictability of future behaviour of the user.
