The Empathy Museum presents

“This catalogue, without question gave direction to my life. I read it during a 14yr prison sentence as I contemplated my wasted past and dismal future. I regarded conceptual art as ‘easy art’, the type anyone could make; I mocked the images of pickled animals, the tent and mostly a household colander with nuts & bolts through the holes. I turned to read how they justified calling that art. My mockery turned to awe in that moment; I later gained a degree and became a conceptual artist. Have a read yourself – Mona Hatoum, No Way ii. (Thank you Mona Hatoum) ”
