Countryside, unnatural nature: At the Guggenheim in New York – temporarily closed for Coronavirus – we are posed some unsettling questions by the exhibition that Rem Koolhaas and Samir Bantal have devoted to the countryside.

“It’s the kind of show we should wish architects engaged in and museums sponsored constantly, asking big questions that go far beyond the scope of the building project or the display of collections. The exhibition speaks to how we make the world, for whom, and what are its consequences.”
