LIFE.AFTER HUMANISM

For Gerz, modernity is only a metaphor, "the acknowledgement that we didn't make it yet". Refusing to suggest or impose a solution, Gerz leaves several sections of these works "undone", as separately framed blanks. Perhaps these voids, these images-that-have-not-appeared-yet, are spaces left open for what he envisions as "life after humanism, a second modernity: non-material art and art without authors.”
