Intouchable, l’Architecture de verre

Intouchable, l’Architecture de verre

Intouchable (l’Idéal transparence et l’Architecture de verre) offers a theoretical, artistic and literary exploration of the question of transparency and its offshoots (opacity, reflection) as an underlying yet potent scenario of the xxth century.

The work includes a complete re-edition and new translation of Paul Scheerbart's seminal text L’Architecture de verre (Glasarchitektur) (1910) – political, moral and poetic manifesto which is also utopic, crazed and eccentric, supplemented here with essays by Philippe Duboy, Guillaume Désanges, François Piron and Marcus Steinweg, as well as a rich iconography of xxth and xxist century artworks playing with or interpreting the ideal of transparency around notions such as eroticism, the service economy, distanciation and hygiene, as well as fragmentation and disappearance.
