12.00—12.30 Introduction

curator Grant Watson

“…what strikes me is the fact that in our society art has become something which is related only to objects and not individuals, or to life. That art is something specialized or done by experts who are artists. But couldn’t everyone’s life become a work of art?” Michel Foucault
