Abstract:

"Architects, contrary to most artists, work by definition from the core of society. Rem Koolhaas is one of the few architects who demonstrates the ability to do so while maintaining a critical distance. Does his strategy contain a hint for artists on how to create significant art in a world where everything seems bound for insignificance? Writer Edzard Mik visited the CCTV building in Beijing, designed by Rem Koolhaas's OMA, and wrote a lyrical 'road essay' about Koolhaas, Beijing and on being an artist in the twenty-first century"--Jacket.
