Simon Castets, curator 

Why did you become a curator?
Because nobody warned me and I am very bad at soccer.

From your perspective how the art world will look in 30 years from now?
Much older, in flying cars.

What is your favorite tool; 
The saw! In Italian it's called sega (female) and has the double meaning of the saw and masturbation - due to the repetitive motion during it's use.
