Stih & Schnock

Who Needs Art, We Need Potatoes

Stih & Schnock are conceptual artists who explore how memory functions in the social sphere and how it is reflected symbolically in urban spaces. They explore how the intrusion of art in public space affects everyday life through their memorial projects, which include: Places of Remembrance (1993), Bus Stop (1994-95), The City as Text (2007). With Bleu du mal/Bad Blue in the City they are currently exploring the relation between ethics and aesthetics of blue light zones in urban spaces and contexts, questioning dominant hierarchies and developments in our society. They also focus on art collections as places of collective memory and have worked as curators. Examples include: Show Your Collection - Jewish Traces in Munich Museums (2008), Who Needs Art - We Need Potatoes (1998), The Art of Collecting - Flick in Berlin (2004) and Life~Boat (2005-2008).

Renata Stih has taught Art and Technology, Film and Media at the University Applied Sciences in Berlin for many years; she has also been writing on film and reporting from film festivals.

Frieder Schnock received his PhD in Art History and is a former curator at the Museum Fridericianum in Kassel. He also teaches Art History to film students in Berlin. Together they have taught at numerous European institutions and American universities, including Princeton, Harvard, Chicago and Brown. They live in Berlin.
