Thomas Hirschhorn – Critical Laboratory

”This book is destined to be a landmark; a primer for how an artist must act and create in the world, it will be a reference work for all future artists who see it as their duty to create dangerously in difficult times.”- Okwui Enwezor

Hirschhorn on his practice and “fieldswork” from a conversation between Hirschhorn, Foster and Lee:
“Fieldwork is…to go to the field, and then to try to encounter somebody, say, ‘Hello, my name is Thomas, I’m from Switzerland, I’m based in Paris, I’m an artist, I have a project, do you have five minutes so I can explain my project?’…This is what I very much like to do.”
