Following on from VoCA’s diatribe on the monumental last week – see posting HERE, we’ve found a little clip of Swiss artist (and VoCA favorite) Thomas Hirschhorn expounding on what he believes art to be.
He obviously believes in the importance of art and treates it with a profound sense of gravity that comes across in his demeanour.
It’s a short clip – check it out HERE.
Hirschhorn recently showed his installation Hotel Democracy at Art Basel after a self-imposed exile from exhibiting in his home country for “political reasons”. Click on the thumbnail below to enlarge it.
