Strategic Questions is an ongoing project to develop 40 answers in response to 40 questions written by R. Buckminster Fuller. Each project is an artwork or combination of artworks that are developed in relation to 40 different publication scenarios. Each project tackles one question and is placed into an existing magazine, journal or other publication vehicle (or a new publication is developed in response to a specific site and context).
These strategic questions were written by R. Buckminster Fuller as part of a statement to a leading figure in the world building industry. The statement is called Design Strategy 1966 and was published in Fuller’s Utopia or Oblivion: the prospects of humanity 1969 (pg. 352). It is Fuller’s proposition that to achieve total success for all humanity until the end of time, all interested parties must possess the answers to these strategic questions before they can successfully combine their efforts.
The display can be found on the 2nd Floor of the GSA Library, near the DVD Section.
