Here’s a couple of links to interviews I enjoyed reading
First one’s with French art critic Nicolas Bourriaud. He made “Relational Aesthetics” a catchphrase in the late 90’s. He’s curating the Tate Triennial this year at the Tate Britain, where he will be attempting to give birth to a new term, “Altermordern”, which is also the name of the Triennial.
The second interview is with American art critic Dave Hickey. He’s been called “ineffable” by the likes of (coincidentally) Bourriaud. He’s teaches at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, and he’s written extensively as a critic for a multitude of publications (just Wikipedia him and you’ll get the idea).
