“Without a model, you are nowhere. A nation that can’t make models is a nation that doesn’t understand things, a nation that doesn’t live,” said visionary artist Bodys Isek Kingelez (1948–2015). Based in Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo) following its independence from Belgium, Kingelez made intricate, inventive sculptures of imagined buildings and cities using everyday materials like paper and recycled packaging.
«Bodys Isek Kingelez: City Dreams» is the first-ever retrospective of his work, from early single-building sculptures, to spectacular sprawling cities, to futuristic late works. These “extreme maquettes” offer fantastic, utopian models for a more harmonious society of the future, and explore urgent questions around urban growth, economic inequity, how communities and societies function, and the rehabilitative power of architecture—issues that resonate profoundly today.
