“Art and Politics”
Stih & Schnock is a Berlin-based artist duo, formed by Renata Stih, Professor at the Berlin University of Applied Sciences and curator at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, and Frieder Schnock, PhD in Art History. Their works, which often have caused debate in German society, deal primarily with collective memory in society. The Holocaust is also a recurring reference for their artistic interventions. Their works have been exhibited in Berlin, at the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, and the Jewish Museum of New York and at Washington University, St. Louis.
Andreas Huyssen, Professor at Columbia University, and James E. Young, Professor at the University of Massachusetts Amherst have given critical attention to Stih & Schnock’s works as examples of the ‘counter-monument’.
