Projects by Researcher @ Hangar
Project which recovers one of the art strategies conceived by Lucy Lippard at the end of the 1960s, called “Suitcase shows” which consisted in the act of carrying artworks in her suitcase from one country to another. This project, though, adds to Lippard’ strategy the concept of smuggling and connects it with the idea of threatening borders and their control devices.
