Edited by Metahaven (Daniel van der Velden, Vinca Kruk) with Marina Vishmidt
“Uncorporate Identity” is an anthology of Metahaven projects, ideas and models. A science fiction book about design, it describes corporate identity beyond certainty, entwined with politics, speculation and information networks. Carved out from the multipolar geopolitical spaces of the early 21st century and the paradoxical leftovers and peripheries of ancient regimes and ruined ideologies, Uncorporate Identity is at once an artistic manifesto for design under globalization and a workbook of essays, narratives and truisms investigating the ambiguous state of identity and branding today. “Uncorporate Identity” is edited by Daniel van der Velden and Vinca Kruk (Metahaven) with Marina Vishmidt and includes contributions by Boris Groys, David Singh Grewal, Vladimir Kolossov, Keller Easterling, Dieter Lesage, China Miéville, Chantal Mouffe, Pier Vittorio Aureli, Bruno Besana, Michael Taussig, Regula Stämpfli, Mihnea Mircan, Mariana Celac, Florian Schneider, Marina Vishmidt and others.
