BaZ: You were already interested in art and put on exhibitions from an early age. How did it all begin?
Vito Schnabel: My sister Lola is an artist. She makes music videos and she paints, she’s very talented. Through her and her friends I became more interested in art, which fascinated me, and I decided to organize an exhibition called “Incubator”. I found a space and showed artists like Luigi Ontani, Jorge Galindo, or Vahakn Arslanian, and of course my sister.
