Hinrich Sachs

Artist, Basel

Guest 2017
Master symposium

While reflecting upon Western cultural frameworks, he focuses on testing, elaborating, choreographing and transferring forms and formats. He therefore employs a range of different artistic formats imbuing each with equal value, wether publications, time based practice, or works for exhibition and collection. He is currently working on Fog Friend Font, a multiple author publication project in reference to the current situation surrounding Inuktitut, the language of the Canadian Inuit, together with co-editor Fredrik Ehlin.

Sachs has held a professorship at the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm, and a visiting professorship at Musashino Art University, Tokyo.
