Claire Withycombe of the Chicago Weekly spent some time with George Kagan and produced this wonderful article on the man behind those unique radios that are currently inhabiting the Hyde Park Kunstverein on our second floor.
A diminutive, neatly dressed man, Kagan parts his frosty hair to the side and studies his subjects from behind large, round eyeglasses. As he points out the salient features of a few particular radios, he takes periodic sips of coffee and glances at the floor to gather his thoughts. Every word and movement is deliberate. His quirky project and demeanor have piqued the curiosity of the audience at the South Side Hub of Production who have assembled to see the man behind the towers of radios.
Read the rest. Thanks, Claire and Chicago Weekly!
