The name, The Broken Arm, is inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s work of readymade—“In advance of the broken arm.” Under the artist’s manipulation, an iron snow shovel goes beyond its own commonness and universality as an everyday object, so that the audiences are no longer bounded by its basic shape and function; art, thus, departs from the so-called “track”, participates in the society, and becomes one of its members, mingling with everyday, business, thoughts, and so on.
Continuing the debut issue’s scale, the second NOT TODAY has come out, with finer details and more appealing stories. Another 6 items in OBJECTS; 2 visits to Frankfurt am Main and Buenos Aires for INTERVIEWS. The wonderful duo from Thisispaper made dumplings and borscht and potato cheesecakes for THE KITCHEN. As SOMETHING SPATIAL, this time is about artist-in-residency.
