I don’t envy the writers stuck with task of trudging through hours of art fair bullshit in the hopes of fishing out a fresh new angle. Aside from protest news, so far Art Basel coverage has consisted of “overheard” roundups, slideshows, and Miley Cyrus sightings. After 14 years, what’s there to say about an event that’s basically a luxury department store? I would imagine, dick.
So this Kim Asendorf GIF goes out to this year’s AFC Miami correspondent Paddy Johnson. “Rio Reset” is a picture of Rio, but the caption on 15folds is particularly relevant to fair season:
Every end is a new beginning, commonly with a higher standard, but sometimes it’s just the same again.
To be fair, I’m including another GIF, “Warenhaus“, in which Asendorf has topped New York with a toilet.
