In Uncorporate Identity: Emblem and Void, design studio and think tank Metahaven embark on a parabolic survey that links geopolitical conflicts to branding, imaginary nations to "star architecture", flexible governance to the iron-cast law of value, and the totalitarianism of the standard to online social networks. Uncorporate Identity is at once an artistic manifesto for design under globalization and a workbook of essays, narratives and truisms investigating the ambiguous state of identity and branding today. The book is devised as a concept album crafted in lines of inquiry around Metahaven's landmark projects, as well as essays, interviews and fiction by China Miville, Keller Easterling, Boris Groys, Dieter Lesage, Pier Vittorio Aureli, Mihnea Mircan, Chantal Mouffe, David Grewal.
