“Let the museums remain empty and the pedestals bare. Let nothing be installed upon them. It is necessary to leave room for utopia regardless of whether it ever arrives. It is necessary to make room for living bodies. Less metal and more voice, less stone and more flesh.” WHEN STATUES FALL~Paul B. Preciado’s Year in Review~Art Forum, December 2020).

Two years at DAI offer a space to critically address why it is what you are doing. The answers keep morphing as we continue to study by means of performance, reading, writing, voicing, listening, making, curating, commoning & conviviality.
