He is the former Chair in Art and Architecture at The Cooper Union, New York, and has served as visiting professor and artist-in-residence in many countries. His media and conceptual art have been exhibited in museums and art galleries worldwide. He is the author of many books including The End of Art Theory: Criticism and Postmodernity; In/Different Spaces: Place and Memory in Visual Culture; Some Cities; and Shadowed, published by the AA to accompany Nietzsches Paris.
