This project explores Johan Huizinga’s theory of play with respect to art, space, and politics. Tracing the ways that his text, Homo Ludens, played out within the revolutionary avant-gardes of CoBrA and the Situationist International, as well as Constant’s utopian project of New Babylon, it investigates the subversive and reconstructive power of play as a counter-paradigm to the rationalist urbanism of postwar reconstruction.
