BELIEVE

Profoundly marked by his upbringing in South Africa during the Apartheid era, Kendell Geers’ art often explores issues of social and political justice. BE:LIE:VE, specially commissioned by MOCA for our inaugural exhibition, is one of a number of his neon works that expose literal word plays that urge new ways to consider the complexities and paradoxes of language, power and truth.

In the LIFE issue we find evidence of architecture’s ongoing metaphysical work in the use of architectural building codes as a tool to limit women’s reproductive choices in Texas, the US military’s conversion of the Aleutian archipelago into its own private radiation sensor, the management of racialized ghosts in Indonesian squatter settlements, the rise of neo-vitalist urbansim in Europe, and the introduction of the logic of automation into burial practices in Tokyo.
