The current issue of Artforum, the New York-based contemporary art magazine, published my review of a recent exhibition of sculptures made out of chocolate, by Congolese plantation workers, supported by the Dutch artist, Renzo Martens. It is a most interesting project, and I don't mean this in a good way! Here is a video review produced by Artforum to accompany the in-print version. Unfortunately, you have to be a subscriber to read the magazine online. The video is free access.
