‘I WANT TO COMBINE SUPER KNOW-HOW WITH CHILDISH INNOCENCE’: PIPILOTTI RIST ON HER DREAMY VIDEOS, IN 1998

With a Pipilotti Rist show having just opened at the New Museum in New York, we turn back to the November 1998 issue of ARTnews, in which Jonathan Turner profiled the Swiss artist. At that time, in addition to having already made a name for herself through some 25 solo shows, Rist had recently been named the artistic director of Expo Schweiz 01, a short-lived biennial in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. Here, Rist discusses her new job, and why her videos combine the aesthetics of music videos, the internet, and feminist art. via ArtNews
