prensa: allora & calzadilla's art of response-ability

As Swiss artist Thomas Hirschorn once said, “I don’t make political art; I make art politically.” Since 1995, this sentiment has permeated the work of Philadelphia-born Jennifer Allora and Havana-born Guillermo Calzadilla, who together create poetic and smartly subversive conceptual art that exposes the machinations of power, rethinks notions of “public” art, and cleverly dismantles some of the assumptions engrained in mainstream western culture.
