ZEESY POWERS, ANGUS TARNAWSKY, ANTON VIDOKLE: 2020

PRESS RELEASE

Veronika has asked me to write a brief introduction to this collection of works, and for the past few weeks, I have grappled with how to approach this task. Over the last year, I have found myself struggling with the arts, with our relationship to power, and with our inability to enact change. I thought first of writing about this tension, about the support of a community, and about art’s role in dreaming of new worlds. I found that I could not articulate these things with any passion because I am frustrated, burnt out, and frankly, terrified of the future.
