MESSENGER ART: A Talk for RISD
(currently Freund Fellows at Washington University in St Louis)
Free and open to the public
please encourage students to attend
(it’s an awkward time slot but the only way to fit it in)
please pass on to your faculty.
Stih + Schnock are multi-media Berlin based conceptual artists, exploring how memory functions in the social sphere and how it is reflected symbolically in urban spaces. In their work they question the ambiguity and ambivalence of social sculpture and introduce how the intrusion of art in public space affects everyday life through their projects, which will be the discourse of their lecture at RISD.

On Monday, we’ll meet at the Metcalf Auditorium in the first floor of the Chace
Center. I’ll be introducing our next assignment. You won’t have any
deliverables for the first week, but you can start thinking about it as you do
your final push on the Ethnographic video.
For Monday’s class, I expect to see working videos from everyone. You may have
elements that aren’t 100% refined or are placeholders (image/video or text),
but it should hold together as a piece. I found virtually all of you behind and
underprepared this past Monday… so push to get these pieces in good shape by
