EXPERIENCE: CARSTEN HOLLER (published by New Museum) 

Art is one tool that permits us to explode our environment into a thousand imagined narratives forms and spaces and times. For example, each society constitutes a script; most of the time, we blindly follow a collective story line that prescribes a manner of comportment, allots work time and leisure, and provides institutions and imaginary models. Art reorganizes these scripts, these scraps of code, as it all these were merely options; it is the cutting room floor of the grand projection we term “reality.” Holler’s work places the viewer in an active position; from the very beginning, we are refused the position of passivity to which the society of the spectacle would see us relegated.  -Nicolas Bourriand
