Havana Biennial 2019: Constructing the Possible Ocula Report Havana Biennial 2019: Constructing the Possible 17 Apr 2019 : Federica Bueti for Ocula

Its very fullness is arguably the condition that Bader's work both critiques and thrives on. 'The world is full of objects, more or less interesting;...
