James Turrell’s light installations are renowned world-wide; the rapper Drake even imitated Turrell’s work in his music video Hotline Bling. Many people know of Turrell, many more know Drake s music. I Fuck with Turrell, said Drake when asked about his inspiration. In 2011 an art department opened at the BBB vocational school in Baden, Switzerland, alongside courses on car mechanics, hairdressing, catering and construction. The school 's percentage for art budget was used to bring artists into the school to produce work and to instigate a dialogue about the nature of work, be that creative or otherwise. While the small book I Fuck With Turrell Ne Travaillez Jamais is a document of the first phase of the BBB art department project, it is much more a visual meditation on how art infiltrates our lives. Across 200 pages connections are drawn between art and the everyday: advertisements and the aesthetics they share; a historic photograph and an art action that recreated it; extraordinary performances beside advanced technology.
