Manufacturing a Precipice: Self critique and dialogue in the studio context

San Francisco Workshop, Saturday April 2nd, afternoon session

Daniel von Sturmer is an artist based in Melbourne, Australia working across many disciplines including video, installation, photography and sculpture. Using examples from his studio practice and international exhibition history he will examine the role of self-critique and external dialogue in the making and appraisal of an artwork’s meaning. Using a subjective account of practice as a starting point, this will involve examining the space of the studio as a site of production, critique and novel thinking.   Questions to be explored include: ‘How do artists create scenarios in which ‘new’ work can arise? What role does a physical space have in this mode of production?
