Abstract :
Book documenting 107 selected unrealized projects by contemporary artists and architects, including: 1) public commissions not fulfilled for political, technical or economic reasons; 2) 'desk-drawer projects' developed by artists on their own without reference to a particular commission; 3) partially realized plans, significant parts of which were not carried out; and 4) missed opportunities and failed projects. Some works have deliberately been left undone by the artists, having 'failed' in interesting ways. Other planned projects involve consciously utopian, non-utilitarian and conceptual spaces that were not made available for realization. The individual projects are presented in alphabetical order, and are printed as artists' contributions without bibliographic data. ;
