Articles on Amodern by Daniel Borins


Our practice often contextualizes visual art within everyday life while simultaneously referring to and reassessing twentieth century art history – its utopias, and stylistic polemics. Concurrently, our projects discuss contemporary museum modalities within the context of ideological stances compromised by globalizing forces. We seek to expose the tensions arising between the historicity, formalism and politicization of the artwork to produce new meanings. Contained within this visual essay are images of our artwork from our early practice up to the present. Our visual contributions are intended to comment on the changing role of the exhibition – one that has moved beyond specimens, and toward designed and immersive environments.
