Exhibiting @TheOtherArtFair

It is very nice when somebody comes to your exhibition. It is particularly nice when the interest is shown by the younger generation of viewers. They are not corrupted by the conventions of ‘good taste’ or art history and spontaneously express their excitement or curiosity when seeing a work of art. At the Other Art…

ECOSYSTEMS II: CRITICAL REVIEW OF PRACTICE @formatfestival

My photographic practice evolved under the influence of critical theories of ecological economics, emphasized by thinkers as Hermann Daly, who was one of the first to offer an integrated economy-environment model (Daly, 1968) and wrote extensively on the subject of the differences of sustainability from pure economic growth and the dangers that the latter brings…
