Christophe Van Gerrewey - Tell me everything. Art and the Language of the Interview #2: Close to Real Time

Christophe Van Gerrewey, writer and an art and architecture critic, analyzes in his second lecture of the series Tell me everything. Art and the Language of the Interview, the interview by Rirkrit Tiravanija with Fischli and Weiss (1995).

In Tell me everything. Art and the Language of the Interview, Christophe Van Gerrewey analyzes four interviews: with Jan Vercruysse (1990), Fischli & Weiss (1995), Dan Graham (1999) and Isa Genzken (2005).
Between the extreme positions of keeping silent and telling everything, visual artists talk about what they do, and about what it does to someone else.
