Marc Fischer Public Collectors Project “Hardcore Architecture” in October ArtNews


Art & Art History adjunct faculty member Marc Fischer’s work is featured in an article by John Chiaverina in the October issue of ArtNews magazine.

From the article:
“The crux of the Hardcore Architecture project lies in the dissonance between these two things—a Google Street View photo of a house and a Maximumrocknroll review of the band that received it’s mail there—when they are laid out together on a minimally designed Tumblr page.

The result is simple but revealing, touching on concerns ranging from architectural history to subculture and class: the house, in fact, belonged to a band member’s parents, and chances are if there was a Cuisinart in it, it was in working order.”

The project Hardcore Architecture was funded in part through a Part-Time Faculty Development Grant from Columbia.
