Constant Anton Nieuwenhuys (Amsterdam, 1920 – Utrecht, 2005), a key figure in Situationism and one of the founding members of the CoBrA group, developed his project New Babylon between 1956 and 1974. Through the project, regarded as the last great utopia in European art, the artist aimed to generate and mould a new urban environment to enable a “total fulfilment of life”. Everything sets out from the premise that, in a not-so-distant future, the growing automation of work driving technological progress would allow citizens to fully devote their time to meeting their leisure urges and thoroughly develop their creative potential.
