Stephen Hodge

Kaleider Resident

I am an artist-academic-curator who makes work across a range of contexts, for example: ‘Where to build the walls that protect us’, ACE-funded, Kaleider commission (2013-14); ‘4 x 4 Screens’, Live Art Development Agency commissioned DVD (2013); ‘The Master Plan’, Book Works/Situations co-publication, launched at Whitechapel Gallery, London (2012); ‘SLarristokaupunki’, ANTI Festival commission, Finland and Second Life (2009); ‘for piano solo’, National Review of Live Art, Glasgow (1994).

I am a core member of Wrights & Sites, four artist-researchers who, for two decades, have focused on people’s relationships to places, cities and walking. The outcomes of our work vary from project to project, but frequently include site-specific performance, Mis-Guided Tours (e.g. ‘Stadtverführungen in Wien’, Tanzquartier Wien and Wiener Festwochen, 2007), published Mis-Guides (e.g. ‘A Mis-Guide To Anywhere’, launched ICA, 2006), ‘drifts’, mythogeographic mapping, public art (e.g. ‘Everything you need to build a town is here’ for CABE/Situations, Weston-super-Mare, 2010) or installations (e.g. ‘mis-guided’, BBI, Fribourg, 2008), as well as public presentations and articles.

I am Associate Professor in Live Art + Spatial Practices at the University of Exeter, and a Live Art UK Associate.
