The existence of a city implies the respect of a great number of said or unsaid codes, namely all these codes which characterize social life from the simple polite gestures up to the obedience to general sanitary, administrative or juridical rules. Does “After urban” refer to the moment when humanity has abandoned its social capacity which indeed represents its fundamental characteristic? Does this mean that each human creature will try to live alone far away from any society? Of course it will be easier not to share space and time with the anonymous others. Imagine! No more traffic jam, no more noise of whatsoever, no more conflicts. Only wild nature. And loneliness. Nathalie Cailteux
