THE ANTI-SOCIALLY ENGAGED ARTIST By Andrew Maerkle -- "There's a secret smoking room behind the video installation of me singing karaoke as Joseph Beuys, Artistic Dandy (2018), so I could hear the song as I smoked. I mean, probably no serious artist anywhere else in the world would make a work like that. But the work is not an arrogant critique of the socially-engaged artists epitomized by Beuys. It's more an expression of my doubt that they would ever let me join their club."

There is a phenomenon of very strong and open anti-black racism emerging in the Netherlands now, on top of which there are also people who deny that there is any racism at all, so we are really fighting over the Dutch imaginary, and ideas about what it means to be Dutch."View More >

WITHIN ME LATITUDE WIDENS By Andrew Maerkle -- "The anxiety about global terrorism goes as far back as Joseph Conrad’s The Secret Agent (1907), which is based on real events of the late 19th century.
