No Chaos No Party
This book features interviews, artworks and the personal archives of 28 contemporary artists who live and work in Metro Manila, Philippines. A conversation in text and images, it illustrates how artists love and hate a perfectly imperfect city, because Metro Manila is full of contradictions. The title uses the concept of chaos, a word often used to describe the Metro in a negative way, as a positive starting point for a diverse set of artistic energies inspired by the limitless content the city provides.
