System World Canvas

The story behind

Philosopher Jürgen Habermas distinguishes the living world and the system world. In the living world people and teams live and communicate between equals, based on arguments and without power. It is the world where love and friendship are leading and daily life dominates. It is the white canvas on which we are born, walk, live and die.

In the system world the instrumental rationality is used and says or dictates what and who is necessary to achieve a goal or to carry out a task. It is the world of rules, regulations, procedures and guidelines. It is the black canvas, in fact the chess board, on which most decisions of public governance are made. In the background though we find the living world, not dominant but present.

Wall art

This rectangle archival pigment print of the city canvas with Pantone® Bright White and Pantone® Black 6c is perfect for a modern, classic and reflective look in home and office interiors. It is a reminder on the wall, that the governance of our society is strongly dominated by this palette of black.
