Testifying of a real random encounter  2016

Printed on business cards, 85 x 55 mm

Edition of 100

A message from Nicolas Bourriaud, personally written down in Collier's copy of his book, Relational Aesthetics. Printed on business cards. With this gesture Collier reflects upon Bourriaud's idea of contemporary art as the creation of shared space, as social interstice, convivial or participatory sharing.  While this categorization was a critical initial attempt to articulate the social and political dimensions of the art of the 1990's, the business card creates slippages between the institutional critique of art and the world at large.
