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.
