This week: The amazing stupendous Michael Rakowitz!!
In a interrogative two part episode (555 and 556) we talk with Michael Rakowitz about the core of his practice and the evolution of his concerns.
Michael Rakowitz is a Chicago based artist whos works have appeared in venues worldwide including dOCUMENTA (13), P.S.1, MoMA, MassMOCA, Castello di Rivoli, the 16th Biennale of Sydney, the 10th Istanbul Biennial, Sharjah Biennial 8, Tirana Biennale, National Design Triennial at the Cooper-Hewitt, and Transmediale 05. He has had solo exhibitions at Tate Modern in London, Lombard Freid Gallery in New York, Alberto Peola Arte Contemporanea in Torino, and Kunstraum Innsbruck.
The works find their roots across history, architecture, and cultural exchange. They ask us to play remote witness to atrocity and triumph as we are made complicit in the challenges and trials of a globalized world.
