The Believer - Interview with Laurel Nakadate →
BLVR: In meeting these guys, has there ever been a negative experience, a line crossed? LN: No. I feel like the men who end up in my videos, their biggest crime is being lonely. They’re not violent, they’re not scary people, they’re just men who keep to themselves and have a hard time being social. I’m always out there by myself, I go into stranger’s houses. I did a project where I went and...
The Believer - Interview with Laurel Nakadate →
BLVR: Were you doing that from day one, making videos involving strangers? LN: Yeah. I got to Yale and I didn’t know what I wanted to photograph. I’d just finished the college-girls documentary. I knew I was still interested in looking at people, I knew I wanted to put myself in a world I didn’t belong in because I liked the friction of feeling like I didn’t belong—the terror of not knowing...

Olympic teen hopeful →
Teenager Alethea Sedgman took up rifle shooting five years ago and is now the second best shooter in the country with a strong prospect of making it to next year’s London Olympics.

Frieze Magazine | Archive | Haegue Yang →
While the perpetual mobility and lack of belonging in Yang’s works create detached, melancholy narratives, the non-arrival seems also to produce a thought process that prevents things from becoming bound. Objects are not kept in fixed positions but are removed from their contexts and realigned in different relationships. It is this sense of disjointedness, in which the connections among things and...

“This is a universal presentation of the impossibility of living together. These are mechanisms and situations which can be observed anywhere in the world. I quote the past, the time of Socialist utopia, youthfulness and optimism – when there was a project of constructing a modernist idea of a new world.” - Yael Bartana

UNCERTAIN SPECTATOR - Emily Zimmerman →

In this seminal treatise, Kierkegaard defined anxiety as “freedom’s disclosure to itself in possibility.” An individual experiences anxiety by coming to terms with possibility, at the precise...

If the bond of awkwardness is more intense than a social encounter mediated by social norms, it also holds the potential to be more meaningful and enjoyable… The enjoyment of awkwardness allows the possibility of actually identifying with those that social orders seek to exclude.

Presented by Melbourne Festival and Australian Centre for Contemporary Art With the arrival of the late 1960s came the rise of people power. The Vietnam War, the rise of the civil rights movement, the strikes of Paris ‘68 - the political and social landscape was primed to explode into a new consciousness, a new era of community involvement and self-determination. Art in turn responded by...
