Cassils’ art is radical and incendiary. They are not afraid of violence but incorporate it in their work in a very literal way, not to glorify but rather to oppose violence. Queer opposition. Cassils is certainly not the only artist that uses this method in their work, which is rooted in late 20th century art practices. Incendiary art might just be a new art category if it were up to Cassils and the speakers they collected with MU for the symposium held during their solo exhibition. Each one of them will give examples of what, in their eyes, could be Incendiary art and will take a closer look at the radical and queer aspects of Cassils’ work.
