Life on Planet Orsimanirana
‘Life on Planet Orsimanirana’ is a project by Jerszy Seymour Design Workshop together with Macao, Assemble and The Dirty Art Department. This publication is a handbook for ‘Life on Planet Orsimanirana’. It serves as an extended catalogue and more for the exhibition of that name at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, and constitutes a multidisciplinary compendium of social, political, ecological and existential artistic visions. Inspired by Jerszy Seymour’s notion of the non-gesamt Gesamtkunstwerk the publication is a comprehensive collage and “collidoscope” by a diverse group of local and international collectives, activists, artists and designers. It brings together these varying and divergent positions in a visual stream of consciousness. It thereby aims to lay a joyful groundwork to create the world we want to live, on a practical, imaginary as well as symbolic level.
