Thomas Hirschhorn in "Investigation"Preview

In this preview from the Art in the Twenty-First Century Season 7 episode, Investigation, artist Thomas Hirschhorn describes the importance of having community support when creating his temporary monument projects.

Shown at work on Gramsci Monument (2013) from the Forest Houses in the Bronx, New York, Hirschhorn recalls finding a “key to the neighborhood” in Forest Houses president, Erik Farmer. “Thomas is definitely out there,” says Farmer, “but he got me out there with him.”
