Since we were babies, we’ve been told that the world “just is” a certain way. As we get older, we start to ask ourselves that even though the world “is” like how we were told, should it be?
Polish artist Pawel Kuczynski and Austrian artist Gerhard Haderer have been using their talents to answer that question through their satirical observations of humankind’s habits and obsessions in ways that are not only thought-provoking,
