On UN PROJECTS
Australia cannot pretend to be Europe, the differences are vast and deeply significant to us, and these differences are what we must realise so that we might develop a consciousness of our situation-identity.1
Having recently spent the month of July in Australia — mostly in Melbourne as part of Gertrude Contemporary’s Visiting Curators Program — this is a partial account of that experience now that I am back in London. It has been difficult to try and process the information and the wealth of encounters I had; this article wishes to present a textual and visual commentary on selected subjects discussed while in Australia.
