ABSTRACT
The article on U.S. artist Lenore Malen's multimedia art project titled "The New Society for Universal Harmony." It documented the spell of utopian yearning in a slyly deflationary paradigm of illness and haeling. Malen's model of utopia is an elaborately woven fiction, a restaging of the magnetic healing practiced in the years leading to the French Revolution.
