“The best ways to achieve one’s goal continue to be the simplest: The handshake; holding up children; listening accompanied by the attentive ‘mmh’ and ‘aha’; relaxed speech combined with the expansive gesture for the purposes of underscoring that which is said; answering questions by using uncomplicated words; the slapping of the shoulder (with and without praise); eye contact;” Gila Lustiger, The Ashe Encyclopedia
The Populism Catalogue documents the four exhibitions at Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius; National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design, Oslo; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and Frankfurter Kunstverein, Frankfurt/M. It features works of fiction as a literary approach to the theme of populism.
