Ayreen Anastas
dOCUMENTA (13) agent, artist, researcher

I am not as much as I would like, as far as I could, if I was not myself one. If I were one, for sure I would, and then something afterward will most likely happen. Thinking about it makes me feel the same, and why then should I write it. Thinking that repeating in language and a biography is something to avoid, habitually when and especially. Avoidance is a mode of silence. The space is shrinking je ne sais quoi no entries found yet still hoping and feeling she felt like she was giving a wide berth.

Rene Gabri
dOCUMENTA (13) agent, artist, researcher

How much should he write to fulfill the task to fill in the blanks. I am a bit of a character a letter, a figure, a symbol, a sign, a mark, a line. How long? How long will it take for the world to know that ecology has more than seven characters, that economy is not wealth, in terms of production and consumption of goods and services. A possibility of something happening: join forces, combine, band together, ally, cooperate, collaborate, work together, pull together, team up, hitch up, hook up, twin.
