Symbols of memory in Berlin art

Conceptual artists Renata Stih and Frieder Schnock explore how memory functions in the social sphere and how it is reflected symbolically in urban spaces and public art.

The Graduate Institute of the Liberal Arts is sponsoring their visit Nov. 11-12, which features two slide presentations and discussions with the artists: “Reflections on Art, Space and Remembrance,” is on Nov. 11 at 11:45 a.m. in Callaway S423; and “Who Needs Art, We Need Potatoe-Public Space and Social Sculpture,” Nov. 12 at 4 p.m. at the Visual Arts Gallery.

Stih has taught art and technology, film and media at the University of Applied Sciences, Berlin. Schnock received his Ph.D. in art history and is a former curator at the Museum Fridericianum in Kassel. He also teaches art history to film students. Together they have taught at numerous American universities, including Princeton and Harvard.
