Shaun Motsi & Adriana Blidaru - ODD Reader Vol. 2: To The Reader
The “Nü Sensitivity Reader” is an elaboration on the themes introduced in the “Nü Sensitivity” project. Conceived as an exhibition space in and of itself – the publication includes new texts, images and propositions by the artist, as well as notes and excerpts from some of Shaun’s favorite texts on blackness, subjectivity, and cultural production.
