Dazed Digital on Paul Chan and New Lovers

Mandalena Munkonge at Dazed Digital interviews Paul Chan about his Guggenheim exhibition and New Lovers. She writes, "At the end of last year, controversial artist and publisher Paul Chan scooped the coveted Hugo Boss Prize – awarded every year to an artist who has made an outstanding contribution to contemporary art in any medium. The winning artist not only recieves new levels of international recognition and prestige, but $100,000 and a solo exhibition at New York's Guggenheim Museum. Chan presented his career's work alongside latest project 'Nonprojections for New Lovers,' which – staying true to his penchant for animation and video work – reinterprets contemporary sculpture and installation through digital mediums to evoke the imaginings of the mind in motion."
