Solution 186–195

Dubai Democracy

Edited by Ingo Niermann

Translated by Gerrit Jackson

Distributed for Sternberg Press




Solution 186–195: Dubai Democracy is the fifth book in the Solution series. Using Dubai as a sort of modernist blank slate for urban and social renewal, author Ingo Niermann confronts today's most relevant cultural and technological developments with analytical elixirs that are as pertinent as they are unbelievable. Niermann's Dubai will become as specialized as housing the global center for treating diabetes—called Sugar World—and as universal as offering non-confrontational public spaces where both a state of total advertising and compulsive kindness, or what he calls a “personal humaneness account,” co-exist.
