If Bader seems to come out of a minimalism and conceptual legacy, it's that histories tension between objects specificity and their genericness, singular yet replaceable, a box built industrially to specs, or definitions superseding the objects they define, and for Bader one burrito and all burritos are with the possibility of being the same. The psychoactive part of Bader's work is this aspect of minimalism hypertrophied, that you can never be sure if you are looking at a concept or an object. Even people.
