Jan Verwoert - COOKIE!

Edited by Vivian Sky Rehberg and Marnie Slater


Bringing together a selection of Jan Verwoert’s writings COOKIE! addresses the forces at the heart of the tragicomedy that making, showing and critiquing art implicates us in. Verwoert renders visible the endless emotional labour of setting the stage (for others), poses the thorny question of whether there could ever be a labour union for con-artists (like us) and gestures towards an ethics of disappointment to battle false expectations and as a way to come to terms with the fact that, no matter how you look at it, criticism hurts.
