THE ADVENTURES OF FRANCIS ALŸS

The works of Francis Alÿs have something monumental about them — not because of their solid structure or permanence, but because of their content. Produced from a heart full of passion and a penetrating vision, these projects have a way of affecting the viewer and subtly encouraging deep thought. DAMN° meets the artist in Kassel to chat about the film and paintings he made in Afghanistan for Documenta 13.
