If you enjoy a good, occasionally contentious discussion about art (or if you’re just curious about what Thomas Hirschhorn is up to with Gramsci Monument in the Bronx), I highly recommend that you clear about 70 minutes in your schedule at some point in the near future to take a look at this video of the July 9 conversation at Artist Space Books & Talks between Mr. Hirschhorn and art historians Hal Foster and Lisa Lee, who edited a book of his writings called Critical Laboratory.
