Art / „Starve the algorithm“: An interview with William Kentridge
World-famous artist William Kentridge, whom the second edition of the Red Bridge Project is dedicated to, is as comfortable in theatres as in museums and opera-houses. This weekend sees the Luxembourg debut of his latest play, „Sybil“, in the Grand Théâtre. In our interview with the artist, we talked about A.I., postmodernism as an aesthetic for the rich, the pandemic and closed European borders.
