Innovatively promoting the interaction between artists and audience, Stefanie Hessler is a dedicated curator involved in several interesting projects and the founder of the progressive art space Andquestionmark in Stockholm. We met with her to talk about the curating process, multisensory experiences, and the negotiation between “real” and virtual worlds. Interview by Antonia Nessen.
The head is a particularly popular body part amongst artists, art historians and spectators alike.
