Make Art with Purpose says
MAP, The Arts and Technology program, University of Texas, Dallas and The Wild Detectives are pleased to present Johannesburg based artist, cultural activist and producer, Marcus Neustetter.

The program will include a presentation of Sutherland Reflections Project, produced in collaboration with Bronwyn Lace, which aims to create a community driven experience for participation, artistic interventions and creative spectacle. The artists and scientists’ intention is to address the current attitude and relationship between the seeming “distance” of the disadvantaged communities in Sutherland and the international neighboring telescopic observatory. Now 6 years old the project sees annual engagements with the community resulting in permanent land-art, kite-flying
spectacles, museum displays, memorial sites and most recently the creation of a full feature film and book together with the Africa meets Africa project.

Born 1976 in Johannesburg, Marcus Neustetter, reflects critically and playfully on his context through his art and collaborative projects. His strategy has been to pro-actively create, play and experiment to build opportunities and experiences that investigate, reflect and provoke. Mostly process driven, his production of art at the intersection of art, science and technology has led him to work in a multi-disciplinary approach from conventional drawings to permanent and temporary site specific installations, mobile and virtual interventions and socially engaged projects internationally.
