 - From Berkeley to Berkeley
A series of interviews, between theory and practice.
The publication includes a series of interviews with artists who exhibited at Objectif Exhibitions, Antwerp (www.objectif-exhibitions.org), over a two-year period, along with a collection of secondary and parallel material produced in collaboration with each artist. Ranging from the humorous to the pseudo-scientific, the artists discuss the methods by which their research is transformed into practice. Both the artists and the interviewers constitute a community of active and concerned arts practitioners who, through art-making, writing, curation and teaching, deal with issues of representation, behavioral patterns and historical legacy.
