  • Dec 2017
  • Sterling Music Room - In Print
  • A year of salons, dinners, exhibitions, performances, etc., in my Brooklyn apartment have finally come together in the format of a printed leaflet that unfolds into a poster, where the simultaneity of all featured activities allow for further contemplation on the idea of the living room within the context of New York's ongoing luxurification.

  • Dec 2017
  • Latest Contribution for Plot
  • Check out Plot's new contribution by Nicoletta Rousseva, who asks how contemporary art, especially politically engaged art, can move beyond an already co-opted critique of capitalism and the nation-state? How could artists and intellectuals contend with the worst refugee crisis since World War II?

  • March 2017
  • New Contributions for Plot 
  • Dissatisfied with the way the recent Fearless Girl sculpture in New Yorkís Financial District has dominated this yearís International Womenís Day conversation, and how it has been widely embraced by the public as a symbol of female empowerment, the editors of PLOT are pleased to present a critical response to this corporate advertising stunt by Blake Stimson: Lean In, The Statue.   www.plot.online/lean-in-the-statue

    We also highly recommend to read Kate Palmer Albers's The Pig and the Algorithm, a thoughtful reflection on computer vision technology and image captioning.   www.plot.online/the-pig-and-the-algorithm

  • Jan - Dec 2016
  • Sterling Music Room
  • Sterling Music Room was a year-long salon and exhibition project in my Brooklyn apartment. While the project drew inspiration from many places, including the transformations of a Rococo period room now in the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, at its heart it was a response to the rising rents and current luxurification of New York City. Through planned events as well as chance encounters, Sterling Music Room examined the possibilities and poetics of a critical and engaged domesticity under the conditions of late capitalism.
