As one of the original curators of Edge of Elsewhere, Thomas provided a valuable insight into the progress that the project has made over it’s three years. Thomas facilitated a conversation with artists Arahmaiani, Khaled Sabsabi and YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES, discussing the role of the artist in contemporary society.
