Art Metropolis, Living Memory

Art Metropolis, Living Memory

Variety caters to the pleasure principle, but it also creates a painful, existential dilemma: You’d have to be a loaf of bread sliced very thin, I decided, to spread yourself around to all the events of Vienna Art Week and Gallery Weekend.
