Show synopsis Space to live in is both a basic necessity and also a catalyst for needs and desires. That is why the subjects of the home and of living occupy ample space in the research of contemporary artists who seek to critically address the complexity of our society down to its most crucial and urgent needs.Numerous artists thus create housing models in which sense and function are not separate. They are either temporary or permanent, private or public. In many cases they are flexible, multi-purpose spaces with a variable structure suited to mobile and even crisis or emergency situations.The book, "Less: Alternative Living Strategies," documents the huge space given to the question of living and the different approaches adopted by artists of international fame. These artists have investigated this subject for some time now, moving between micro-architecture and macro-design and trying to imagine a different and more sustainable future by designing new ways of living.By changing into builders and symbolically designing the world of tomorrow, artists express above all a need for strategies and challenging designs for collective development.
