Gabriel Orozco: Impossible Utopias

Impossible Utopias is an original and elegantly-written meditation on the political potential of Gabriel Orozco’s subtle body of work. Starting out from a close reading of Observatory House, a lesser-known work by the artist that also doubles as his holiday home, Lily Cole develops a persuasive account of the momentary utopias that are opened up by Orozco’s playful experiments with everyday reality. In so doing, Cole also contributes to an urgent project to reassert the impossible possibility of utopian thought in and for the twenty-first century.” —Luke Skrebowski, University Lecturer in the History of Art, University of Cambridge
