We’re part of this exhib opening tonight at Kunsthalle Kiel: Old School – Anachronism in Contemporary Art, where we’re showing Rot and Freedom, inside an unfinished wooden room, so the photo above is not of the box under construction but it’s the actual finished thing. BTW, very excited to be in a show together with Taryn Simon.

biennalepy antivirus code

Just received this great email about our work (2001):

“Recently I downloaded and executed in my computer. It infected several Python files of projects I was working on.  To revert them to the original state I wrote a sort of antivirus based on the original It is a rather simple modification of the original script, changing the name and behavior of some of the original functions of the script. I had a lot of fun writing and testing it. I was some kind of  ‘Erased de Kooning Drawing’ of one of my favorite software art works.”

If you are curious you can get here, remember that your computer must be infected!

From Susan Sontag, Regarding the Pain of Others: “It seems that the appetite for pictures showing bodies in pain is as keen, almost, as the desire for ones that shows bodies naked. For many centuries, in Christian art, depictions of hell offered both of these elemental satisfactions. […] There was also the repertoire of hard-to-look-at cruelties from classical antiquity – the pagan myths, even more than the Christian stories, offer something for every taste. No moral charge attaches to the representation of these cruelties. Just the provocation: can you look at this? There is the satisfaction of being able to look at the image without flinching. There is the pleasure of flinching”.

btw, the same night opens the group show we’re curating there, Brand Innovations for Ubiquitous Authorship.
