‘Nothing about these on-the-nose works is sublime; instead, they teeter into the perverse. One can, after all, interact with real-life low-income and working-class people for free. The (White and elderly, at least during my visit) museum-goers politely gawking at working-class — sometimes dismembered— people seemed like an exercise in poverty pornography.’ Nevdon Jamgochian, ‘Josh Kline’s Exercise in Poverty Porn’, Hyperallergic, August 6, 2023.
