Description

German for Artists is a hybrid pocket grammar book and an artist’s humorous reflections on the more philosophical aspects of the German language. Written by the Danish artist Stine Marie Jacobsen, the book offers a critical and very humorous linguistic introduction to the vibrant and international cultural scene in Berlin. The book looks at contemporary art through the optics of language teaching, educates the reader about art and German grammar at one and the same time.

German for Artists offers an insight into the basic German grammar by using well-known people on the international art scene to visualise the rules. The book is designed for artists, curators and other art enthusiasts who dream of learning German. It is an easily portable book offering grammatical first aid and ready-to-use phrases, that will help your understanding of the language in the German art world. A must for all “nicht-so-gut-deutsch” – speaking cultural workers in Germany’s capital! The book offers advice to help art people in different typical social and practical situations in the Berlin art world.

Stine Marie Jacobsen (b. 1977), is a conceptual artist working to decode individual and collective violence through participatory means. Focusing on language, gender and psychology, she uses film as a starting point to create performative experiments and platforms for new ways of looking at ethics, identity, fear and trust. She lives and works in Copenhagen and Berlin, graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts with an MFA and a BFA from CalArts, the California Institute of the Arts, Los Angeles, USA.
