Video: Pablo Bronstein at Frieze

by Pablo Bronstein on 15 October 2006

Pablo Bronstein continues his investigations into the style that critics brayed at and the style conscious noughties urbanites forgot: post-modern architecture. Developing the invitation from Frieze Projects curator Polly Staple to create some sort of tour-based work to happen in or around the fair in London's Regent's Park, Bronstein decided to provide a geographical extension of visitor's experience by taking people on a bus tour of the city. Hiring a coach and fully embracing the role of tour guide, Bronstein crafted a route and an engaging argument about the relative value of post modern architecture to the landscape, development and perception of London today. Put down your Eames coffee-table reader, and go celebrate the decadent pretensions of London's boom town facades.
