representative representative

Representation is a big word and it gets exponentially bigger when it itself is represented. Like multiplying by negatives, an absence of an absence constructs an index of an index. What would that look like? Rod Barton presents the group show “representative representative” bringing together…

form ever follows function – Ein Rückblick von Carina Bukuts

Basel Blörb #4 by Karim Crippa

Shlepping around a severe hangover, I spent yesterday in an odd limbo, not quite sure about what to do. I first went back to Art Basel to check out things I had missed and talk with the ladies from Luxembourg & Dayan, whose attitude was…
