Bodys Isek Kingelez’s utopian buildings defy easy categorization: they are works on paper that double as sculpture, architectural models never intended to be built, and bold projections of democracy and world peace created from the humblest of materials. In this session, we will walk down some of the roads mapped out by Kingelez to learn more about his multifaceted work as artist, designer, architect, engineer, and dreamer. Meet at the entrance to Bodys Isek Kingelez: City Dreams, Floor 3.

This session is led by Petra Pankow.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with collections and special exhibitions.

Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required.
