We live in crisis.
Ricocheting from crash to crash, the global economy is in a techno-maniacal race to the bottom that sidelines increasingly large swaths of the world’s population.
As our homes, property, and increasingly bodies are offered up as collateral to the tyranny of financialization, it’s necessary to ask “how did we get here?”

Introducing an upcoming video series of economic PSAs marking the 10 year anniversary of the 2008 Financial Crisis.

OTHER CONTENTS
Usually when you walk into a show, the first and last thing you remember is the door. I feel like a lot of my earlier work, some people thought it was some parallel to street art. I thought, fuck it, let’s just address it and get it out in the air. In conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist
In conversation with Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel
In conversation with Margot Norton
I’m working on a zombie-sex robot. Its body is based on an 18th-century ball-jointed wooden figure and I am incorporating silicon elements, from silicon sex dolls that are customizable. So it’s customizable in terms of what the sex doll market has to offer but not immediately ‘fuckable’. In conversation with Anna Gritz

CURA.28
I am most at home inside myself or so I think. Everything I buy becomes a part of me, a hateful new appendage to take care of just like Julio Cortázar warned me in his Instructions. If only I’d just bought a watch instead of the leathery couch, the bony lamp and the marble countertop which reminds me of my own veins slowly rising through the paleness of my leg. Where do I end and where does my house begin?
