Montez Magno

Christinger De Mayo

Ankerstrasse 24

His freedom resides in blurring the boundaries between the logos (knowledge, science) and the gon, the territory of the imagination. In this invented (because inventive) cosmos, fields that might be seen as far-removed or contradictory run into each other boundlessly. Read more...
