Christian Boltanski The Life of C.B.

As you climb the steps from the ferry, you will pass a zinc bunker containing a twenty-four-hour, live video stream from the studio of celebrated French artist Christian Boltanski, capturing his every move there until his death (he was born in 1944).

‘Of course,’ said our Great Patron, David Walsh, ‘it would be absolutely great if he died in his studio. But I don’t think it’s ethical to organise it.’
