Andrew Brown


Andrew Brown has engaged in solo and collaborative projects involving sound, text, film and performance since the late 1970s. He is Course Leader for the interdisciplinary MFA course at Nottingham Trent University and has written for various art publications, as well as being author of a book on the devising processes of the Anglo-Belgian performance company Reckless Sleepers.


Andrew founded the project Open City in 2006, inspired by a chance event witnessed in a city square in which several (presumably unconnected) individuals began to run in different directions at the same moment.


Everyday urban behaviour has since been observed, sampled and released back into environments across the world, with previous manifestations taking place in cities such as Aix en Provence, Berlin, Belgrade, Toronto, and Budapest, each composed of material responsive to the specificities of a time and place and based upon a subtle critique of our relationship with the city.
