“The Burnout Society” by Byung Chul Han


Place you wish to see your work exhibited one day:

Turbine Hall at the Tate Modern or even the New Gallery in Berlin, are both dream sites.

Exhibition you enjoyed and why:

Glenn Kaino’s work at Mass MoCA. The sheer scale, immersiveness and multi sensorial experience of sound, visuals, shadow motion, installation, lighting design and moving through a dark space slowly really gripped my imagination. Also, ERRE, his powerful object based, critical of North American politics artworks really felt like a win for all marginal causes, spoken from the artworld an into larger society.

Pablo Helguera and Felix González Torres

Waterlilies by Claude Monet; anything at El Palacio de los Cristales in Madrid’s El Retiro; the PONCE letters by Carlos Villafañe in Puerto Rico.
