A Pro Helvetia New Delhi presentation


Kochi Muziris Biennale has invited the very renowned Swiss artist Thomas Hirschhorn to engage with local audiences and conduct a workshop for a month long period on “Energy: Yes! Quality: No!”

The goals of Critical Workshop “Energy: Yes! Quality: No!” are:
– To encourage doing something, a work of one’s own
– To be ready to have it judged
– To trust one’s own — very own — judgement

About Thomas Hirschhorn

Thomas Hirschhorn was born in 1957 in Bern (Switzerland). He studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule Zürich from 1978 to 1983 and moved to Paris in 1983, where he has been living since. His work is shown in numerous museums, galleries and exhibitions. With each exhibition in museums, galleries and alternative spaces, or with his works in public space, Thomas Hirschhorn asserts his commitment toward a non-exclusive public.

Critical Workshop “Energy: Yes! Quality: No!” is part of Possibilities for a Non-Alienated Life, curated by Anita Dube.
