Massimiliano Fuksas and the conflict

Massimiliano Fuksas and the conflict

This morning we had the honor of interviewing Massimiliano Fuksas at the chilean Biennale.

It was a great interview, along with others we conducted during this last month, that we are going to publish soon, so be ready.

After the interview, we continued talking down the hall with Mr Fuksas about the conception of his projects, and all of a sudden he asks “can i draw it?” and while i was looking for some paper, he just took out his pencil and started drawing on a column at the museum where the Biennale is being held. On the above picture you can see the relation between Fuksas’s mind and heart, on which according to his explanation the importance is on the space between them: the conflict. Something very interesting that i can’t explain here, but i hope that you can understand from the interview.

After that it came the funny part, as the museum staff noticed this “graffiti” and freaked out, since the Contemporary Art Museum is an ancient building. Some wanted to erase it, some wanted to frame it. But it’s still there, and will stay until the Biennale ends next weekend.
