Since the 2008 financial crisis, lists of well-being indicators, happiness indexes and quality-of-life rankings have become viral. Concurrently, the emotional data presented in these surveys feed an expanding political agenda of happiness and a new form of market whose most decisive asset is "affect". 'Our Happy Life'  investigates the architectural implications of this trend by dissecting and questioning the political, economic and emotional conditions that generate space today. The book reveals architecture, city and landscape as contested surfaces, caught between the intangible guidelines of happiness indexes, the new marketplace of emotions, and the relentless ideology of positivity. Published in conjunction with the exhibition at the CCA from May 8 to October 13, 2019.

'Performance Works' examines changes taking place in the traditional exhibition format, which has recently been taken over by hybrid forms that link the visual arts with the performing arts, literature, and music. The book reflects on the changing role of the viewer, who increasingly has become a performer and active participant. Authors also analyze the role of the performer's body and the work that is involved in extended performative exhibitions. Additionally, the book presents the outcomes linked to the performance program launched in 2016 at Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art in Warsaw, which examined the performative turn in visual arts and its consequences for art institutions, as well as artistic and curatorial practices.

ISBN: 978-3-95679-522-0
It was the concept of the ocean as a global commons, free for everyone- first formulated by Hugo Grotius in his 1609 treatise ‘Mare Liberum' - that stimulated a free global market. Today, the free market and the free ocean both suffer from rigorous, exploitive use. A new concept of how to relate to the ocean could transform the global economy and global politics.'Solution 295-304: Mare Amoris'  proposes new practical, technological, and metaphysical scenarios of how to fall in love with the sea, and, eventually, have the sea fall in love with us.
The editing of the ‘Solution' series is a project by Ingo Niermann.
