What message do you want to share at re:publica Detroit?
Art these days can be a practice of truth-making beyond aesthetic gestures. And I truly believe socially engaged art is more necessary than ever.

In one word, what does access mean to you?

What are you looking forward to most at re:publica Detroit?
First of all to learn about Detroit and its scene and to see how we can connect our practices and experiences across continents and cities.
