On Saturday 18 October 2014 we launched our recent One Work book, Thomas Hirschhorn: Deleuze Monument with this dialogue between the artist Thomas Hirschhorn and author Anna Dezeuze at Central Saint Martins, London.
Thomas Hirschhorn and author Anna Dezeuze discussed the book and the artist’s approach to producing and maintaining works in public spaces, with reference to Hirschhorn’s other monuments, including Gramsci Monument(2013), Bataille Monument (2002) and Spinoza Monument (1999).
Thomas Hirschhorn is a Swiss artist who lives and works in Paris. His work is exhibited internationally and has been included in exhibitions such as Manifesta 10 (2014), the 54th Venice Biennale (2011) and Documenta 11 (2002). Recent exhibitions include ‘Höhere Gewalt’, Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin; ‘Flamme Eternelle’, Palais de Tokyo, Paris; and ‘METAMATIC Reloaded’, Museum Tinguely, Basel (all 2014).
