Art-Is-YourselfFinally everyone can be an Artist
"I can do that too!"
”Everyone is an artist“
Joseph Beuys (1921-1986) was wrong on this one.
Art-Is-Yourself (Artist D.I. Y. Kits)
Would you like to own an artwork, but you cannot afford it? Here is the solution: with Sebastian and Elkes' Sensational Artist D.I. Y. Kits.
This art-project is an ironic response to the commercialisation of arts. In my former artwork I experimented mainly with recontextualisation of everyday objects and the analysis of the phenomena in everyday life with various media like photography, video and interactive installations as well as prints and performances. What does it need to make Art, to be an Artist? Can we copy Art by using the same materials or is it the idea, the concept itself that makes it valuable?
