Twins in Contemporary Art

Back in March I published a short piece in Frieze about the use of twins in contemporary art. This will develop into a much more substantial piece of work later this year, when I begin a chapter on twins and performance. The article, though, gave me a chance to go to Berlin and see a piece of installation art by Richard Kriesche, which featured twins sitting in the gallery reading a text by Walter Benjamin. You can read about that work and the other works I think it can be grouped with here.
