Susanne Kohler lädt im Rahmen ihres Seminars “ergehen, erinnern, erzählen” und der von ihr initiierten Kollaboration zwischen den Studierenden der AdBK Nürnberg und dem Royal College of Art London “invisible Borders” die Künstlerin Monster Chetwynd zu einem Vortrag an der AdBK Nürnberg ein.
Monster Chetwynd is known for her exuberant performances, featuring handmade costumes, props and sets, Chetwynd describes her work as ‘impatiently made’, often re-using cheap materials that are easy to process and to use by the many performers she invites to participate, emphasizing the notion of collective development that informs much of the artist’s work.
Monster Chetwynd (b. 1973, London) lives in Zürich, Switzerland. Monster Chetwynd graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA in painting (2004), following a BA in Fine Art at the Slade School of Art (2000) and a BA in Social Anthropology and History at UCL (1995).
