New guest blogger: Ali Fitzgerald

Thanks to Thea Liberty Nichols for her terrific interviews with Chicago-based artists and practitioners.

Up next is Ali Fitzgerald. A regular writer for our Lives and Works in Berlin column, Ali is an artist/writer/comic artist living in Berlin.  She has contributed comics to the Huffington Post and this site, and she recently wrote a review of the Richard Hawkins show at Galerie Daniel Buchholz for New York Arts Magazine.  For the past year and a half, she has been working on a graphic novel, tentatively titled The Cool-Dead, about her exploits in Berlin. For her guest blogging stint, Ali will offer up a series of essays/reviews/comics about apathy in contemporary art, like how not to be a “hater” and rediscover the joy of looking/talking about stuff.
