Ben Kinmont

Born, 1963 in Burlington, USA

From the archived Documenta 11 website : www.documenta12.de//archiv/d11/data/english/index.html

“Ben Kinmont has been working systematically on the fringes of traditional art institutions to question the meaning of the very category of art. He has washed dishes in a museum cafeteria, received strangers at his home, asked passers-by on the street about the possibility of considering a casual conversation a form of art, all as part of his work. Thus, Kinmont recovers and reinterprets the post-war conceptual tradition, basing his practice in the ethical and aesthetic potential of interpersonal relationships.”
