If only the real world could be more like Bodys Isek Kingelez's

This detail of Congolese artist Bodys Isek Kingelez's mind-blowing four-foot by six-foot by ten-and-a-half-foot fantasy architectural model / sculpture / collage, "Kimbembele Ihunga" (1994), is reproduced from the undisputed staff favorite book from our Spring 2018 list, published to accompany the first comprehensive Kingelez retrospective in the United States, on view now through January 1, 2019, at MoMA. "I created these cities so there would be lasting peace, justice and universal freedom," the artist is quoted by essayist Chika Okeke-Agulu. "They will function like small secular states with their own political structure, and will not need policemen or an army." If only the real world could be more like Kingelez's.
