Making Worlds // Hacer Mundos
53rd International Art Exhibition
A work of art is more than an object, more than a commodity. It represents a vision of the world, and if taken seriously must be seen as a way of “making a world”. A few signs marked on paper, a barely touched canvas, or a vast installation can amount to different ways of world-making. (Daniel Birnbaum)
