2038 – The New Serenity
La Biennale di Venezia, 17th International Architecture Exhibition, German Pavilion:
2038 – The New Serenity, invites the audience to discover a story between fact and fiction. In a series of films, it tells the history of a better world in which everything, though imperfect, is better in some pretty profound and radical ways. Based on the knowledge and visions of a collaborative team of international experts from Architecture, Art, Ecology, Economy, Philosophy, Politics, Science and Technology, team 2038 strives to explore our future society through prefigurative politics, illustrating modes of organization and social relationships to come.
We were very happy to design the reader „2038 — The New Serenity“, published by Sorry Press. The anthology features contributions by Audrey Tang, Christopher Roth, Erica Love & João Enxuto, Erik Bordeleau, Evgeny Morozov, Hilary Mason, Jacob Eli Goldman, Jennifer Jacquet & Becca Franks, Joana Pope, Leif Randt, Ludwig Engel, Lukas Kubina, Mark Wigley, Meghan Rolvien, Michael Stoeppler, Mitch Joachim, Olaf Grawert, Suhail Malik, Tatiana Bilbao, terra0, and Tirdad Zolgahdr.
Going along with the German Pavilion’s pureness, the reader has a strict, bold black-and-white layout featuring the dominant QR code that leads to the official exhibition website.
