"As an artist, you never know what's real and what's not, but you feel it's your job to know." With the tone of the first sentence being indicative of the whole, The Bearded Island is a prosaic analysis in which Urs Fischer & Darren Bader sort out sex, money, America, the canon, production, and other aspects of living as an artist. A very interesting and helpful peek inside the world of two sought-after contemporary artists. Signed in blue paint pen by Urs Fischer.
