What does it mean today to have a life with kids, to have a life in art, and to live a life? Why are children and the artist's life so hard to unite? Or is this a false assumption? Spike Art Daily dedicates a series of interviews to the problematic relationship that the art industry has with its offspring. In this interview, curator and theorist Chus Martínez talks about shared realities, competitive situations and why children always open us up.

What does it mean today to lead a life with a child, a life in art and a life as such? Why are children and life as an artist so difficult to reconcile? Or is that perhaps not true at all? In a series of interviews, Spike Art Daily is dedicating itself to the problematic relationship that the art world has with its children. We start with Isabelle Graw. The critic, professor, and editor of Texte zur Kunst explains why children sometimes even make it easier to oppose the logic of an economy that has it in for our lives.
