Between 1926 and 1928 the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein designed and built a house in Vienna for his sister. Notable for its clarity, precision, and austerity the building not only crystallized his philosophy of architecture, but served as a foil for his written work.
"Life Class: Today's Nude continues Alan Kane's often irreverent attempts at popularizing the production and dissemination of art and culture by taking the life class model out of the privacy of the studio and into the nation's living rooms on daytime TV. John Berger, Judy Purbeck, Maggi Hambling, Gary Hume, and Humphrey Ocean tutor classes with a diversity of models in studio settings ranging from the Royal Academy of Art's Life Drawing room to a dance studio and a public library. Broadcast on Channel 4 as a series of five half-hour classes, the viewing audience is invited to observe and draw a nude figure guided by one of the artist-tutors. Please upload your drawings to flickr.com/groups/lifeclass and a selection will be shown on artangel.org.uk."
Angelo and Temporary Services
This project is a collaboration between Chicago based collective Temporary Services and an incarcerated artist named Angelo. The two-year collaboration included illustrations by Angelo of prison inventions and detailed illustrations of his cell. Temporary Services re-created the inventions and his living space, and published a book of his drawings through Half Letter Press.
